I'm 52 and my husband is 58. We just this weekend bought a couple of bikes for riding around town and maybe some longer bike paths, probably never more than around 10 miles round trip. (We both bought Trek 7.2 FX, since I know someone will ask! )
So we are buying necessary stuff like locks, pump, helmets, a couple rear-view mirrors. (The type you afix to a helmet doesn't work with progressive lenses! I had to exchange it for the kind you put on your handle.) My seat hurts from two days of cycling, so I'm considering my options. Here's my question: Are there any bike shorts that aren't tight and spandex-y? That us aging boomers can wear into a store, coffeeshop or restaurant we might want to bike to?
Neither of us is overweight, but gravity has taken its toll, and I would prefer not to advertise that fact to the world via spandex.
Thanks in advance!
