    Wrong trousers?

    I know that over here we have started to get some warmer weather this May- but it is about to change. We have had the warmest average temperature for the month since records began in 17**? Most of my cycle clothing is set up for cooler weather cycling but last Sunday I got a bit sweaty. So out for a quick blast round the lanes tonight and I decided it was time for some cooler clothing. 50+ jersey- the short sleeve one- and a pair of Bibshorts I don't wear very often as They are a bit cool. They are made of a material called Cool max. Cool max----They ought to call it freeze max. 2 hours after getting home and my thighs are still cold. Never have thigh problems- but I can feel a hamstring pulling and I put that down to not warming up before I went for a slope.

    So roll on the cool weather- I know I have the right clothing for that.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Coolmax is great stuff. Try it in hot weather sometime. It won't turn a Georgia July day into a pleasant experience, but it will help make it almost semi-tolerable.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    What is this "cool" you speak of? I haven't been cool outside in months.
