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

T-shirts question

Where do I buy riding T-shirts that are not tight, but rather loose on the body? I hate these tight shirts, especially where I ride. Very hot here. ideas?

Are you talking about jerseys or do you want to wear a t-shirt... I guess if you want to wear a t-shirt just go to any athletic store and buy a tech fabric running shirt. Don't know why a tight shirt would bother anyone in hot weather.

Are you looking to buy jerseys to ride in? Usually you don't ride in t shirts as cotton is a pretty bad material for the heat as it holds all the sweat and moisture. If you mean a jersey they usually come in two different "cuts" or styles. The Race cut is a tighter slimmer fit and they also have club cut which is a little baggier.

Look for a "club cut". Otherwise you can just go up a size.

Just follow the lesbians to the nearest Carhartt dealer.

Depending on your size i'm trying to get rid of 2 Oakley jerseys that are loose cut instead of tight so they do not fit me like i wanted. they are size small but fit more like a medium at least. basically new i only wore one once, one not at all.

Or.. go for club cut or mountain bike jerseys
