I finally got my own pair of actual bike shorts. What I learned today is that these shorts do NOT flatter my body type. Come to think of it, I'm not sure they are flattering for ANY body type. These were obviously invented by a man.
I can honestly say, though, that I will proudly don these shorts each and every time I ride, since I have just returned from a short little jaunt and my behind still has sensation. Nice, huh?
