It's A Lifestyle


Well last year I attempted to combine two seperate lifestyles that both represent me.... Bike Racing and Dreadlocks.

First off it shouldn't be that hard to be a hippy. I have never washed, twisted, and played in the mirror more in my life. I swear I felt like I was going to the prom everyday. This season I am getting the "didn't you used to have dreads?" comment quite a bit... I guess you can't miss the guy with dreads sticking out of his helmet.

I actually had a blast with them, but I think I could write a book on how I was treated differently with the dreads and without. The bottom line is I am a simple person, interested in the natural lifestyle but I am also a cyclist who had a hard time strapping on the helmet. It was more like placing it on top of my head and pulling the dreadies through the vents till it fit!

If your a cyclist with the locks.... much respect. I wish I could have pulled it off (you should have seen my Mom's eyes though when I walked off the plane with the dreads!! Priceless)

Jah Bless
