Still a Girl, Under the Mess!

I spit all over my face, blow snot rockets meters away from my bike, get bad chafing when I'm really unlucky, and sometimes have a bit of blood on the wrong side of my skin.  Bike riding isn't gross, but it is no beauty contest. 

Return from a recent, long, bike ride where I got especially dirty!
Thanks to Velo Gioielli who has helped me keep up with my more feminine side though.  He's an artist who has created a few custom pieces that fit with my Optum Pro Cycling presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies kit. 
Check out these bracelets and earrings, made from chain parts, and spoke nipples!
Velo Gioielli has a shop on ETSY (http://www.etsy.com/shop/VeloGioielli) if you want to check out what he has in store.  It's a lot of fun to browse, and he's more than likely to have, or be able to whip up something that suits you to a T. 

I'll be wearing some of my jewelery from Velo Gioielli at the Air Force Classic Bicycle Race criteriums this weekend in Arlington, VA.  Is it enough to distract from the mess of mucus and sweat that I'll manage to make?  Come by, say hi, and have a look! 

THANKS for the jewelery, I love it!


  1. Awesome post ! Really funny :D

  2. Still a stylin' girl

  3. Hi! Yes, great post and I'm loving the love backs! Thank you for wearing my stuff and it was fun doing something custom. I love bike racing so much it's a thrill to see it on the podium. I've always had the mantra, "it's a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll!" Looks like you like to rock and roll Lex! Cheers!
