I now know where the current argyle cycling sock rage came from. It came from busy (forgetful) people who are always forgetting to throw their riding socks into their riding bag. If you wear socks that are already sort of office worthy its one less thing to think about. Me? I just forget my socks. Thankfully I can pull off blue and black.
and then RAIL some corners proper. note to self. RAILING corners on leaf strewn trails after 1+" of rain is not advisable. Fun trying though.
