You're not cool in your all black riding gear. No helmet. No reflectors.... Look, when people drive by they don't say, "look how stylish that bicyclist is in the rain. Wearing all black. He's so hot!" No, nobody says that. Not one person that drives by you thinks you're smart. The truth is, you're a dumbass. I mean, what fucking moron would ride in the rain, all black, no reflectors, no helmet, with traffic.... and I see it all the fucking time! Come on Portland! Are you afraid if you wore a yellow jacket with a blinker you'll be mistaken for a Transplant? Use some common sense. Stop trying to get killed by someone who's driving home from work.
Black is Not Bicycle Gear
