Black?
Red?

Lycra?
Baggies?
Jeans and t-shirt?

    Wear a comedy all-over body cast and come in a hospital bed. Otherwise people will forget your troubles and won't give you sympathy.

    If it's attention you are looking for old girl I think we all know the best way to get that....
    Fixed gear for wet weather / hairy roadie for posing in the sun.

    Perhaps someone can mount a trailer to their bike, then we can plonk you, cast and all, in said trailer...

    Now that I've come back too...

    Let me think...

    There was THAT little number, a dress, you turned up in when we did the Marlboro Loop. You asked me how you looked, I said nothing, stunned and amazed :oops:

    Then you wore your favourite Marmite top during the ride (and also at the Morpeth) 8)

    After the Marlboro Loop you wore a Bench T-shirt and some jeans that made you looked slightly Kurt Cobain grunge/rock chick hot.. :mrgreen:

    So based on that (and stunned at how picture clear my memory is :shock: I remember everything) I'm not sure what you should wear.

    How do the options make you feel Linds?

    :wink:

    Are you sorry you asked?

    I am only slightly perturbed that you have a better memory for what I was wearing than I have......

    How about all of your options (may make you a little warm), and then you could do a quick change after every lap of RP.

    Personally the Ballgown is by far the most sensible option.

    In lycra. With back pockets.

    I vote for the ballgown, with matching long gloves and a tiara in place of helmet. Sorted! :)

    You know what the answer is to that then don't you?

    You should wear nothing at all..... :mrgreen:

    2 ideas come to mind

    this or this. Neither practical for riding but would make the group piccies interesting. :lol:
