Well, if a guy is wearing pink he might have problems, but if he's simply
wearing black lycra shorts there won't be any problem, unless his shame is
showing on his face.

Think

|| wearing spandex. How do you think that would play out.

No problemo.

Heh, funny. Actually, I hope sometime in the future to be able to wear hot
pink, like Jan, on the bike. But that's at least 10 years of training away,
methinks, if ever.

IOW, when the 'look' matches the _performance_, then I'll think about it.

Well if you're surrounded by lucious babes on bikes, you don't need to

Others, well, their mileage may vary... g


There's a bit of conflict there as most of these young women are of
the counter-cultural persuasion so to some extent shun the lycra look
for bikes. Sara however very much liked my watermelon jersey and bib
knickers and expressed that she needs to get some padded shorts for
herself. Cara loves all my pink stuff but I've gotten several
compliments on that.
