There are some folks that scoff when they see cyclists wearing eye-catching attire. I get that. But when you love your sport and thoroughly enjoy doing it and everything about it, you look for opportunities to embrace your passion for it all. This doesn't make you a snob or an amateur. To the contrary, it makes you an aficionado, a person who is passionate and enthusiastic about that which they do.
When you cycle wearing eye-catching attire, you are showing your passion and enthusiasm. You should never worry about what other people may say or think about what you wear. Most cyclists like seeing a beautiful or cool jersey. You have to wonder, if someone is put off by a cool jersey, helmet, matching cycling caps, arm sleeves, and headwear, what else are they likely to be bothered by? And the opposite is worthy of a thought. If someone is likely to appreciate a display of passion and enthusiasm for the sport, what does this say about them?
Some say that we are all butterflies waiting to happen. There are even business management training programs that use the caterpillar changing into a butterfly phenomenon as an example of how we all have the potential to transform into something beautiful. So, if it makes sense for how we go about our business, it makes sense for how we go about our cycling. Don’t settle for being a caterpillar when you have butterfly potential.
There actually are some benefits to sporting bold, even ostentatious, eye-catching cycle wear. First, when you make your presence known to drivers of vehicles, you have increased your safety on the road. Second, if you are cycling in a large group or if someone you are with has lost you in the crowd, you will be much easier to spot. Third, you become welcoming and approachable to others as they can always start a conversation with, "Nice outfit!" And fourth, when you are bold whether in action or dress, you set a great example for others to follow and it encourages them to be bold too.
So when you get right down to the point of it all, the question isn't do you have swag, rather it's what's in your swag bag?
