    I think.

    Is It Summer?

  • I remember when the Kybo’s would arrive in the start town “back in the day” and they’d be accompanied by an inventory of “Keep on Going With Us” t-shirts that so many of us ended up buying. I wonder if any other portalet companies have been able to market themselves in such a positive light.

  • I love the shorts!  I had several different pairs like that, each a different color, and I wore them riding that year too.  My kids hoot with laughter at what we wore back then.

    Not to mention the added emphasis with the tucked in t-shirt (and visor, too).

    Ah, well, it won’t be long before we look back as fondly on what we wore during the 2011 ride!

  • I miss shorts too.  As a man, your choices are soccer/running shorts or something 3 inches below your knee (which by definition are no longer shorts).  Kind of like how all the backetball player have to wear shorts under their shorts(MC Hammer uniform pants).

  • Give me a biking skort any day. Comfy, athletic, and still a bit girly. And they transition well to dancing in the beer tents at night!

  • Back in the day. My riding shorts were cut off jeans. Helmet was a riding cap. I don’t miss the chaffing….

  • I can’t remember what I wore on my first one, cotton t-shirts and tennis shoes for sure and probably shorts of some kind.  No cut offs though, I just could not cut up a pair of Levis.
    RIDE RIGHT
