Something That Truly Mystifies Me

There are a lot of guys here who ride bikes at lunch. They've got their tight pants (whirlybirdgirl likens them to Pampers), they've got their shoes that look like pumps with the heels broken off. They've got their Alien-head helmets...

and they've got bicycles with seats the size and shape of throat lozenges.

My ass hurts just looking at them.

There's a theme here, but I can't quite articulate it, beyond the fact that it has to do with butts.

Despite the fact that mine has the look and texture of two unbaked loaves of French bread, yeah, I guess I'm a bit of an ass-centric.

The tight pants have padding around the bum and nether regions. It's not as bad as you think.

It's still scary, but not as bad.

As long as the two bony protrusions at the bottom of the pelvis are well supported, anything else is just kind of superfluous.

When I get a working bicycle again someday and get into the clipless pedals and other signs that one is semi-serious about the activity, I'm hoping I can at least find shoes that contain a little ankle protection.

But, I admit, part of it is that I just want to meet women with incredible glutes and quadriceps.

Mine does too. Although some of those stretchy outfits have extra padding for just that reason.
