So yesterday I got a set of grocery bag panniers from REI. I've been wanting them for some time to add to my town/commuter bike project. They seem really practical.
Anyway, I put 'em on and set out to run some errands, and at some point it dawned on me that, riding around with my little bell, my lights, rack, and now my grocery panniers, I have become such a dork! I might as well just don the reflective safety vest, get some white tube socks and yank them all the way up to my knees, and be done with it.
