Let's share some interesting affects cycling has had on you...

 

Sore eveything.

Always hungry.

Always tired.

My 3 fingers on my left hand went numb for the first few months.

Had to change the cut of jeans I was wearing due to increase in the size of my thighs.

 

If I can get jeans that is comfortable over my calves and thighs then the waist is usually way to big.... a nice fitting waist again and the damned thighs are too tight again.

Try that American brand. I settled for 582. Never in my life will I ever where department store branded jeans. I only wear jeans during the weekend so they get replaced every 2-3 years. Believe it or not but Queenspark is the cheapest for this cut. Even cheaper then the official shops.

Look dodgy in a speedo,( for swim training in the gym) , with top deck looking legs, white tops and brown tanned bottoms, plus dodgy shaving lines when having difficulty knowing how far up to stop.

I'll write it out loud and proud - S A D D L E S O R E S.

Nevva had those as a runner!

 

And, yeah, I do 'see' bikers and cyclists now on the road when I am in my car.
