Altamonte Springs Florida, back on a Bike

Getting back into a scene that I love. This time a little less frenetic, but definitely in for the long haul. Trying to get my commuting skills back up, and learning about Advocacy, Planning and Community.
Sounds all high falutin, but just trying to make a little difference.

<grin>
Go to the Utilikilt website, shop for either the Survival or the Mocker ...... I am featured on both pages ...in the scrolling marquee of pictures at the top of each.
Many of my colleagues in the New World Celts https://www.newworldcelts.org sport Utilikilts, and I plan on wearing one of mine to the next Critical Mass in Orlando.
Too late to post one of my own here now.
Thanks for the welcome.

I seem to remember that there were some guys in Commuting who were convinced one couldn't ride in a Utilikilt. Do a search and set them straight, dude!

Not my place to set them straight, gay or otherwise.
I can attest to the challenges of kilted riding, and also to the advantages
Traditional kilts lack the utility of the "modesty system" employed by utilikilts, which not only prevent unseemly "flare ups", but allows the rear side of the kilt to always be under my backside, not draped over the back of the saddle.
Current conditions preclude me from actually commuting in my kilt (long story) but bicycling in general is possible and pleasant in said attire.
