Typically, I do not approve of a poncho. Let it be publicly known, I actually think that ponchos are, to be honest, a bit silly. What’s more, on a bike at least they may even be a little bit dangerous. God knows it would be an embarrassing way to crash out, sucked under your own wheels by your poncho. And still, this lady looked really cool, just cruising away with this fantastically silly poncho and all this Yoko Ono hair and specs. Combined with a helmet, I guess what we’re seeing is that I’ll forgive anything.
Poncho update: Ironically, I ran into this lovely lady recently at the Rose St Markets, where we were both holding stalls. She, it would appear, is also a fantastic seamstress who makes these gorgeous, slip-nothing frippery ladies camisoles and boxers. These are not good for riding in, however, I believe that if someone, initially attracted to your helmet, then took you home to “peel your banana” down to said lingerie, they would not be disappointed.
