    I realized I'm a confirmed road cyclist when...

    I put on on a loud "shirt" (jersey) with a picture, and wording (the RAIN jersey from last year), some semi-matching aging-hippie-style bright blue socks (with flowers), and a normal looking pair of black (mountain biking) shorts (with an inside chamois, of course; my road shorts were unavailable), added a helmet, hopped on my one-speed (fixed gear) bike with funny looking (bullhorn) bars. I looked down at the plain-looking black shorts and thought...I wonder if I look funny?
    Suzy Creamcheese, what's got into you?

    Perhaps I should be more self-conscious when I go out in basketball shorts and t shirts.
    Bring the pain.

    On recovery rides I'll wear MTB shorts with my faded Pearl Isumi "college" jersey or just any T-shirt on my cross bike with MTB shoes. I need to dress relaxed in order to ride relaxed.
