Tues 02/01 Ride Report

After another RC yesterday (3 complete root canals in the last month) I went for an ez ride. Just a little ride to test out the new Falconi shorts from Dan and Love2Pedal. The shorts? Great man!




Pic taken from a fwy overpass. I wanted to prove to myself that I could conquer the monster haha!

I tried a pair of those shorts too, they were comfortable, and the price at Love2Pedal was great!

Yup, $32. Last pair of Pearl Izumi Ultra Sensors I bought (1.5 years ago) were $110 and not as comfy. For the money, can't beat them!

Where I grew up, we didn't know about floss. Could be the reason I never got the butt floss jokes of early adulthood.

These posts with California pictures have got to be killing everyone in most of the rest of the country. It is kind of fun to kick them when they're riding their snowblower. My condolences on the RCs.

Enough with the boring ride videos! Where's the modeling photos? We need pics of the featured bike shorts. Will they work for my massive, bulging quads?

Very comfy! Well my thighs aren't massive at 24 inches but the 3X fit the thigh well but a little loose around the knees. I think my knees have shrunk a bit.

But I guess it's better that the knees aren't bigger than my thighs.
