So I am getting ready for my 1st ride on the GAP Trail from Pittsburgh to Cumberland in early. I need to purchase a new set of shorts and maybe a couple of shirts for the ride.
I ran across this company based near Pittsburgh, offering some styles as "Made in USA", which appeals to me.
I looking for advice from you folks. I don't want to stand out on the GAP, but I want comfortable clothing that will launder easily and dry quickly (I'm taking to two sets of ride clothes for my three day ride - laundering the first set to wear again on the last day).
So - snug fit or loose fit for shirts? Regular bike shorts, or MTB baggy shorts? Also is the stuff from ATD any good? Primarily, I'm looking at these for shorts:
and these for shirts:
Any and all suggestions or comments welcome! Money IS an object for this exercise, as I am on a budget to make this ride happen....
Edit: I should add I'm 6' 2", 167 pounds, if that makes any difference in suggestions.
