Sock Guy socks du jour: Ride Clean

I wore these eye-popping yellow Sock Guy “RIDE CLEAN” socks this morning on my commute.

Socks du jour: Ride Clean

RIDE CLEAN is a campaign promote clean cycling.

The RIDE CLEAN blog makes notes of the news that track star Marion Jones admits to doping. This confession comes on the heels of the recent news that Canadian cyclist Genevieve Jeanson admitted to regular use of EPO since she was 15 years old. This summary of Genevieve Jeanson’s confession hints at the possibility of an abusive relationship with her coach.

Like the RIDE CLEAN people like to say, Ride Clean and the rest will follow. I really really like the positive example that Team Slipstream is setting in this regard and I hope that the rest will indeed follow.
