Mmmmm, Cycling Shorts

January 7, 2015

The Tour de France is now only seven months away and I’m waxing poetic about the buzz of gears while cyclists fly up and down European roads. In my own world, I’m thinking how thankful I am when I go for a short ride at the gym – 19 degrees out today, I’ll be inside thanks – and I have on padded shorts. I can’t imagine how sore I’d be after riding hundreds of miles day after day in one of the grand tours.

That’s it. Just a note of thanks to the technology wizards who created the padded biking short. They’re probably not at #CES2015 right now, but wherever they are they are appreciated.

Full Tour de France coverage, predictions and commentary coming once the plants arrive and the snow departs. Have a great winter!
