Melissa Davies of Bike Pretty, how did you catch a photo of my doubleganger in the dotted skirt and tight brights?

I’m pretty sure my good twin is bicycling to work, on my behalf, to complete the last 3 weeks of the SGL Bike to Work Challenge to Benefit Saving Innocence. Note that is not Teal Tornado in the photo with Ms. Doubleganger.

After 6 weeks of victorious fundraising for Saving Innocence using StayClassy and cream soda enticements at the office, my bicycling came to a halt. After work one Friday evening, I disembarked the public bus. I lifted Teal Tornado off the bus’s bike rack and pedaled as usual towards home. I wore oversized shoes that day. I missed the pedal, managed to do a cartwheel with Teal Tornado and broke a toe.
I like to think I was still pretty with my dark blue and black striped socks, skinny jeans, grey cashmere cardigan and spiffy bike helmet.

When the blood soaked through my left sock I knew that Teal Tornado and I were likely to be put on a mandatory break.

I joined Nanowrimo at the suggestion of Associate Editor Erica Tyler who is monitoring Home & Community this season. She finds the writer community and the rider community to have a kinship!
So for those still willing to support Saving Innocence this Fall, please donate to the same site. This is my newest write-on/ride-on photo. The bicycle stamp represents 9,000 words completed for the write a novel in November challenge. Write-on! My goal is to reach 50,000 words by December 5th.

In you find yourself similarly sidelined as a SmartyGirl or SmartyFella athlete, may I suggest Nanowrimo as well? SGL is in your corner. I am cheering for RideSchwinn, Kevita and Bike Pretty!
