Ok Vancouverites,

If you were a little late on the rain gear have no fear! Although you have probably been little soaked since Friday...

Bikers going to and from our beautiful campus must be aware of the fact that a rain jacket just isn't enough. Get on those rain pants! They fit right over your jeans. I almost bought the North Face $80 high tech ones until I discovered MEC (Mountain Equipment Co-op) and got some sweet ones with reflectors for $45! Around Main St. it is the mecca (pun?you decide) of outdoor sports wear and equipment. AKA: Vancouver's identity in a store. (You will need to buy a $5 membership, but it's no big deal.) -->

One more lovely little thing I discovered today was this blog called Vancouver Cycle Chic. It's a street style blog for bikers! Love it! (It is an off-shoot of its Copenhagen counterpart, which in my opinion gives it undeniable street-cred.). -->

If you have completely dropped the ball and don't have a rain coat yet may I recommend Lululemon's Right As Rain Jacket. When I was home for Thanksgiving my Mom treated me to it and I have been in love with it since! It's COMPLETELY water proof (I waited 40mins for a bus in the the rain and was dry by the time I got to the party... but that's another story). Also Hunter boots are a must... as I'm sure you've noticed around campus.

Need a little air in your tires? I just discovered The Bike Kitchen on campus today (left of the basement SUB). Free air! -->

P.S. Odwalla smoothies are 2 for 1 @ Safeway! Love that stuff.
