No ride today—we were busy doing other things and it was darn hot, anyway.
So, today’s bike blog post is about shoes.
Shown are most of the shoes I own—excepting bedroom slippers and one very grungy pair of gardening sneakers. The question is, which are the RAGBRAI shoes?
The flip-flops are the only ones that I haven’t biked in. Yes, I have commuted to work wearing the sandals. But, no, not RAGBRAI were. The flip-flops will likely get to commute in luggage—I figure a pair of shower sandals would be a good idea, given the number of fungus-infected feet that might be sharing showers on a 16,000-person bike ride.
The dress shoes are out.
So the real choice is between the white sneakers and the brown sneakers. I usually wear the brown ones to work—they are my most comfortable shoes. They seem like a logical choice.
I tend to wear the white shoes for longer walks. They are stiffer shoes, and provide a bit more support. They don’t bend as the brown ones do. That might make them better for a long bike ride.
But the brown ones are best for just hanging around or short walks between beer gardens.
So the real choice is between brown and white. Any suggestions?
