For cycling, I wear padded, spandex biking shorts. Yes, I do. I readily admit this conjures up a somewhat unpleasant and even humorous mental image for a lady with salt-and-pepper hair (emphasis on the salt), but there it is. Now, my husband, who also wears the padded shorts while cycling (and cuts a much better figure in them than I do, just sayin’) has two very practical rules for wearing spandex. I share them here:
Bob’s two rules for wearing spandex—
Rule #1 To wear spandex, you must have the right body type, and….
Rule #2 ….nobody has the right body type.
No matter, I wear it anyway because otherwise I’m in pain. It’s affectionately referred to as “saddle soreness”, which I get even with the padding if I haven’t been diligently riding my bike enough. It’s that infamous truism, if you don’t use it, you lose it.
