Whenever I go out on the bike, it is a serious matter and I dress up in the right gear. Helmet obviously but also always in cycling top- cycling shorts and if coolish- an over top of some description. I had to go to a friends house tonight so the new bike got another outing. Helmet and glasses and rather than put on the Lycra shorts- Just put a pair of ordinary shorts on. Didn't bother with the spd's but the pedals on it have a large cage around the clips.
What an odd sensation. I kept feeling something rubbing on the inside of my thighs. Looked at that area when pedalling and could not find a loose cable or bit of the frame that I was touching, but it was an irritating feeling. Then I twigged what it was. Every time my thigh passed the seat post- Static was pulling the hairs on my thighs. Whenever I do ride- It is either fully togged up for a ride- Or I am in long trousers and the situation does not occur.
From now on I will have to take longer rides- After all, it does not take long to put on a pair of lycra shorts that extend down the thighs- except I only have Bib shorts- and they take longer. The other thing that shocked me was how cool it was. Just a "T" on and they do not keep out the draft from cycling. Wish I had taken an extra 30 seconds and got properly dressed for the 2 mile ride. Then I might have felt like going for a further 20 to see how the bike rides.
