Rip . . . .

Did my morning ride and swim combo this am.

Got to the pool after the ride, got the swim suit on, did a couple of laps, raised my leg for some reason, and RIP - the whole front of the swim suit rips open!!

Fortunately, I had a towel within reach (I usually don't) and was able to get out of the water "decently."

Just ordered a new swimsuit on the internet.

Anyone for skinny dipping?

This is REALLY commando!

DnvrFox's next exhibition will take place on the greater Denver MUPs. He will be 20 miles from home when his bib shorts rip from top to bottom.

You can get arrested for those kind of shenanigans in public, you know.

I'm not sure about Colorado, but in some states you could have been arrested for "assault with a friendly weapon".

I wear Jammers. They're lycra racing suits, but they're not the typical bikini type, in fact they look almost exactly like bike shorts. You can get them by Speedo, Arena, and most other racing suit makers.

At my age, when I saw "Rip", I thought you meant "RIP", and someone had died.

Have you been eating lots of watermelon?
