    Is there something a bit weird about men dressing in spandex cycling shorts and funny shoes?

    I understand it's necessary for riding but for a
    lot of guys I see they walk around town in this stuff.

    Discuss.

    Stay out of the middle of the road, cyclists, or else I will run you over!

    j/k

    I did my first MS-150 charity bike ride and was sore for about a week, afterwards. I hope I can get a better time, next race. (no homo)

    im all about using bicycles as much as possible, instead of fuel consuming vehicles

    however, the lance armstrong types around me are some of the most inconsiderate fools on the road

    these yuppies and their 5 thousand dollar bikes and 2 thousand dollar outfits like this is the tour de france

    and these guys gain this faux-badass-ness when they meet up with their friends in matching outfits and ride as a "crew" flipping off drivers, cutting them off, switching lanes, running reds, etc.

    cycling is how I get around... and yes I have the gay spandex and shoes. but the shoes are good because they're efficient because instead of always pushing down on the pedal you can also pull up with the opposite leg... and I only wear my fancy spandex during races. only cycling snobs wear that shit all the time. also the spandex has saddle pads, stops the butt hurt on long rides.

    I recently got into road biking this summer to burn calories. I rode on the local bike trail ( it goes for miles) and I ended up liking it a lot. I never wore tight clothes though.

    That said, road bikers generally do stupid things like run stop signs and cut in front of cars. One ran and stop sign AND cut in front of me yesterday.

    Not sure about gay, but they're pretty fucking annoying. Either when you're driving, walking on the sidewalk, or riding the train.

    I am a cyclist and I don't wear that stuff.

    You know why? Because I am not in the Tour de France where going 1/100th of a kph faster is really important.

    I just find it weird when people wear that stuff biking around the city as if they were in the Tour de France.

    lol. Not that riding a bike is gay, but alot of people who like to ride bikes are kind of... kind of wusses I guess. At least where i live most of the hardcore bike riders are chubby kids trying to stay in shape who can't do anything but pedal and steer so running, climbing lifting weights are kind out of the question. Lol. I mean honestly you just kind of pedal and go places. It's like driving a car but you have to push the car. If i was old or near crippled i bet i'd like it but, I'd rather lift weights, run, box, rock climb etc than ride a bike.

    I loathe cyclists.

    They take up the majority of the road yet they don't pay tolls.

    Pricks.

    How would running be out of the question? Running has got to be the easiest, and most boring ways to stay in shape. Takes no skill, you go so slow even retards can run but they need training wheels to ride bikes.

    Can't you just wear the spandex under your shorts? How does spandex really help an everyday un-timed ride?
