Team Bikes to Rwanda

August 28, 2011

After stressing my experiences as a solo rider, I’ve joined a team. Sort of. Bikes to Rwanda has its own racing team, based in New York City. Though I don’t race, I’m thrilled to be a part of the team, and to wear this kit on as many rides as I can. I hope to also wear it at a few bigger rides and races to help spread news and awareness about Bikes to Rwanda. I’ve struck up a number of conversations while on the bike (with other riders) about my Domestique jersey, which I wear fairly frequently, so I hope there’s opportunity to do the same with the Bikes to Rwanda kit. I’m still on the fence as to whether I want to explore racing next year (in which case I can now register as a team member), or participate in a number of longer challenge rides. Either way, the chance to continue my relationship with Bikes to Rwanda would be great. And it is a slick looking kit.

It’s a nice kit—the design (complete with the Bikes to Rwanda logo) is spectacular, and Giordana makes good cycling apparel. Good color, too, which is a bit different from the heavy emphasis on black or white in most kits.

Haggard—post-ride—but good kit improves the look.

I have an inkling that I maybe should have gone a size bigger in the shorts; Giordana’s leg-grippers are a little uncomfortable, but that hardly impedes the riding (and only reinforces my preference for a band instead of grippers at the bottom of the shorts).

Definitely need a haircut. And the footwear is not team-issued...
