The Do's and Don'ts to cycling:
- Do dress the part; if you're taking a casual spin before heading to a lunch with your girlfriends, rock some Nike wedge hi-tops with your cycling gear.
- Don't wear cotton track pants, especially in light shades. No one likes a sweaty crotch.
- Do sign up for SoulCycle when you're in New York next, since it's like - the best thing ever.
- Don't leave your long locks untied or have a scarf floating in the wind; it might look glamorous in the movies, but it's not IRL when you get caught in the wheel spokes.
- Do rally your friends to join you, bike clubs are definitely a thing.
- Don't forget to watch Tour de France 2015. And don't wear a fanny-pack. Definitely don't do that.
