Wearin’ O’ the Green and Bicycling While Intoxicated in Idaho
Since it will be St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow I thought I would seek out an outfit that is not only fashionable for celebrating, but you can wear while riding your bicycle. This one has some great layers, so no matter the temperature, you can stay comfortable while pedaling from pub to pub. Another great benefit is you will have on your green preventing any pinching or other odd tradition that is customary on this particular holiday.
Keep in mind if you are imbibing that you drink and ride responsibly! (You may want to add a bicycle helmet to this mix). Plus here is what the State of Idaho has to say about it:
Bicycling Under the Influence
In Idaho, bicycles are defined as vehicles. Idaho’s law prohibiting driving while under the influence of alcohol or other controlled substances is written so that it applies to motor vehicles. However, motor vehicles and vehicles are defined to be the same under Idaho law and therefore Idaho’s DUI law applies to bicycles. Bicycles should not be operated while intoxicated and operating a bicycle while under the influence of alcohol or other controlled substances may result in severe punishments.

So be safe out there and don’t forget to have on something green! I haven’t quite picked out my actual outfit yet…I don’t really own anything green, which could turn out to be a problem! What will you be wearing tomorrow?
