A Brief Blog Profile: High Heels & Two Wheels
by Thomas Hynes
High Heels & Two Wheels is a blog about a woman in South Carolina who sold her car in 2010 in exchange for a cheaper and healthier mode of transportation. These days she relies primarily on her bike to get around the city of Charleston, where she lives. That's the name of the blog, but it also sums up how she looks on most days. By that, I mean she hasn't changed her look, only her commuting methods.
On the blog, you can see that her quality of life has not diminished at all without a car. Part of that is the handy basket on the back of her bike. At times, she uses the basket to transport flowers from her boyfriend. And at other times, she's a traveling party, shuttling guacamole and a case of Tecate. And even though the blog is called High Heels & Two Wheels, there are times when a girl has to wear flats. Still, she's always smart enough to at least wear a helmet. (Safety first!) And, having said that, there are still plenty of high heels on this blog, like these that appear to have spikes on them.
High Heels & Two Wheels is about biking, yes. But, it's also about fashion and food and travel. It's about life. It's about making beneficial changes to your life on a daily basis without changing your wardrobe. It can be done. And this blog is the proof.
