A recent charity ride was well documented and I managed to get in a few shots. Despite riding 100+ mi a week, the ole "Budweiser Tumor" is still pretty evident, particularly in a bike kit while riding. I'm #183.
It immediately occurred to me that the smooth, rounded shape must present a very aerodynamic front to the oncoming rush of wind, hence The Aerobelly.
At first I though the only advantage over the inefficient rippled abs was the smooth rounded form. However on the ride this morning I realized another benefit while in the drops.
I noticed that my thighs were bouncing off the resilient Aerobelly. When I sucked it up, the bounce back was gone.
So is this an excuse to down a few more pints?
