Tall socks and lycra?

August 6, 2010

Sure, why not. The best part is changing out of your cycling costume and into normal clothes, then hitting the ‘ol Safeway on the way home ’cause you’re starving and that takes precedence over any fretting about showcasing your mud splattered legs, and the exact geometry left behind after the removal of said tall socks, in the produce isle. Cyclocrossers out there will recognize the irony of the fact that, in the fall, you get the exact opposite effect when you peel off your woolie knickers and get to stand there in the parking lot with a white, bare ass and gray, mud colored ankles.
