I did a search on this before posting, but while the question was asked the answers were a bit beside the point.
The question: Is there any performance based reason that one could not reasonably wear bicycle shorts underneath regular gym shorts?
Most of the responses in my search were urges not to be self conscious, just go with the tight stuff and forget the outer layer. Not looking for a pep talk here, guys, but a sense of whether this will hinder the performance of the shorts on 12-15-17 mile recreational rides. Thanks!
