OF ALL MY FRIENDS WHO RIDE, this friend's weight swings the most wildly. You know that question on the insurance forms or at the doctor's office... Have you lost or gained 30 lbs in the last year? You know, the one you don't have to think about, ever. Neither does he. It's a yes.
Right now, he's running around grabbing his gear, changing in the buff with the garage door wide open.
How'd these bibs get so small?!... oh, boy, I bet you're going to write about that.
No way... I say.
Eventually, after he wiggles and jiggles into his clean kit we get riding. And we see this giant rattle snake. I didn't get a great pic, but you can get an idea of how huge he was by looking at his tail. And it got me thinking, isn't it great that modern cycling fabrics are so stretchy and they don't slough off mid-ride when we've out grown 'em?
