Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Pants!

What are these "pants" you are discussing? Relaxed fit Dickies shorts for me.

I refuse to wear anything called a "Dickie." The fact that I possess one is good enough for me.

Everything in there is probably lightly coated with narcissism (Oh, I just can't shop for jeans in department stores, have I mentioned that I can leg-press a buffalo?), but it may be useful all the same.
That's so dopey. Why would someone who went to the trouble to develop an extraordinary physique even want to buy ordinary clothes from a department store? Do they want to be special or not? Seems to me that wanting to be a body builder means wanting to not be able to fit into ordinary clothes. It's like deciding to be an airline pilot then complaining about having to travel all the time. Duuh! It's either an amusing way of bragging or a cautionary tale - to be careful what you wish for.

Relaxed Fit or Athletic Fit have worked for me. I bought men's Denizen jeans from Target because they have stretch to them.

I'm curious as well.


Jeans in my length are pretty scarce in stores and if the waist fits, the thighs are skin tight when I sit.

Well, you're certainly showing an inordinate interest in the matter.

But, it is well known that Dickies come in long pants as well.

I am sure that doesn't happen very often.


Thank you, ladies and germs. I'll be here all week. Make sure you try the veal.
