Packing my bag for our cycling holiday is a very quick affair. The ‘luggage limit’ imposed not by Virgin Atlantic, but by Mike might even be considered mean by Ryanair! One small front Ortlieb pannier is all that is permitted. Fortunately, I’ve become pretty adept at choosing a range of garments that can be ‘mixed and matched’ to produce a very compact, yet flattering – I wouldn’t go as far as to say stylish – holiday wardrobe. So like a Cindy doll, I have an outfit for every occasion: cycling, running, beach, (yes, Chicago has several), shopping, sightseeing, eating out and visiting museums. My capsule pieces can do it all. Gok Wan, eat your heart out!
