I am 6' 215 lbs (down from 260 4 months ago). I have been riding my mountain bike around town(ususally with my 2yr. old in his seat on the back. This exercise along with healthier diet has been awesome. I am really thinking hard about getting a road bike to start doing some longer distance riding and give myself a change of scenery. My main hold up( I am sure this sounds stupid) is if their are any alternatives to skin tight riding shorts for road riding. It is not that I am self concious because of my weight, I just don't care for that look. I tight jersey doesn't really bother me, but are their more baggy shorts that can been worn without looking like a complete fool to other road riders? I know there are benfits as far a chaffing for tight shorts, but is it unheard of to wear tight shorts under more losse fitting clothing for road riding? I know i am setting myself up for some ribbing here, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
