Are you a fashionisto like me? Then you own at least one pair of WABA (Washington Area Bicyclists Association) socks. If you wear them on Wednesday, Brian over at Tales from the Sharrows, @sharrowsdc, and Gear Prudence (he has multiple personalities, don’t you know) has pledged to donate his life savings and his fiancee’s Metro SmartCard to WABA.
So today, I proudly wore my new-ish WABA socks.
Don’t they go great with my orange and black bike shoes? This look is all the rage in Paris. (Among the blind.)
So do the following:
- Buy some WABA socks
- Wear them on Wednesday
- Post a picture on social media with the #wabasockswednesday hashtag and @sharrowsdc in the message
- Ride your bike
I think it would be cool if we could get people all over the world to do this. Perth. Cape Town. Malmo. Buenos Aires. Hanoi. In no time at all Brian would be homeless. Also, we would all find out that waba means something truly vulgar in Urdu.
