This is kind of silly-
I know that some people would say that I don't wear appropriate footwear for the serious exercise of bicycling.
This evening I went for a pedicure, and forgot the flip flops I'd brought for the day under my desk at work.
Hence, rather than ruin the fresh paint with the grotty toes of my danskos, I just kept the toes on top of the shoes, and biked home like that!
Ok, it looked really silly, and it probably wasn't terribly efficient, but it was just fine for a short trip on a hot summer night! And my pink nail polish arrived unscathed!
