How to look good cycling.

Alana Cremonte lives in Cape Town and is our latest guest blogger.
She’s focused on her career, loves fashion, cooking, music, and
looking and feeling good. Follow her at http://misscopasetic.wordpress.com/.

The new bus route is finally up and running in Cape Town, which means I won’t waste two hours of my life doing a horrible work commute. I’m all abuzz because there’s so much I’ll be able to do during those bus rides – like read books and draw perhaps? Heck, I may even study something!

But the biggest ‘hooray’ of this new development is that you can take your bike on the bus. That means I could cycle the last part of my journey, so I’ll get some actual exercise every day of the week.

But I have so many unanswered questions about bicycling etiquette. Like, how do I carry my laptop; because I’m not really a backpack kinda girl. Then there’s the question of helmet head? Not to mention the fact that a helmet isn’t exactly an accessory I’ve dealt with before. Also, will my make-up survive the uphill part of my journey? And what if I want to wear high heels to work?

One thing I do know is that I’ll be riding [in my dreams] this 26" cruiser bicycle with a Gucci logo on its frame and an engraved GG handlebar bell.

Take a look at http://www.gucci.com/us/styles/171257I31D02582# for more.

And while I may not be able to steer clear of cycling-hat-head, these yakkay helmets are definitely better than the plastic racing ones the cyclists wear.
