Rookie Errors Lipgloss Everyone has done this once and regretted it. There is nothing more annoying than strands of hair glued to your lips which you yank off only to have them back there three seconds later. Repeating this process for half an hour until you get to your destination is up there with spam text messages and Facebook hashtags as the most annoying things ever. Tight skirts The minute you attempt to sit on your bike, it dawns on you that this is going to be a Tour de France kind of challenge. You’re probably too late to run back in the house and change so you figure with some tweaking, you’ll be able to make this work. The harsh truth is – nothing works. You’ll arrive at your destination, cursing, frazzled and ready to rip the damn thing off your waist. Drunk Biking That’s a thing you ask? Well I certainly didn’t think so until I rolled into a tree, pre-drinking from a bottle of vodka while riding to a nightclub. Ignoring the illegality bit, drunk biking makes for great stories but is never as much fun at the time.
