i think most people recognize me because of the red lipstick i wear while riding. it's bright and it turns lots of heads. for some, wearing makeup is an issue for most women when they ride; as they believe it will melt off their face from sweating. looking fresh is important and it's possible by not racing from point a to point b and just ride with ease. i also feel that the red lips give me a sense of empowerment as i ride next to the fixie boys or lycra wearing riders. i swear, no matter the circumstances, wearing red lipstick makes everything better, especially a cute outfit.
