What are you wearing?!?

by jen g

I am the Teen Program Director at a YMCA. The St. Croix Valley YMCA in Hudson, WI, to be specific. I have been bike commuting to Hudson from St. Paul, which as all cyclists know, bike commuting equals quality of life. Now, if you go back to the first sentence, you’ll notice that I work with teens – middle school aged kids to be exact. So, the other day when leaving the YMCA with my sweet orange bike and my snazzy spandex Bella kit, a number of my teens got a complete look of horror on their faces. “What are you wearing??!?!” was exclaimed with the deepest embarrassment and concern I could have ever imagined from these kids. It was so entertaining. I think I’m inspiring them….. ;)

I know from experience, teenagers in wisconsin have no fashion sense. Forget about it!

I remember the shock and awe I got when a boy saw me swing my leg over the bike to get on. Thank somebody I don't have to wear a burka on the bike.

After they see your kit a few more times, they'll start thinking, "Hmmmmm, I gotta get me some bike clothes. If Jen's wearing 'em, they MUST be cool."

teenagers everywhere have no fashion sense.

I'll take our team kit and raise you a hair metal spiral perm.
