woh, Trailpatrol, buddy, settle down. Soundin a lil too elitist for me, cmawn. The baggy mountain bike shorts with spandex under is pretty much what im goin for. So thanks for the suggestion, sans the attitude.

thanks for the links alfonso and DU! I'll definatly check them out! =D

and thanks for the wise words staehpj1 I'll be sure to experiment before the long haul. = D

Gear Talk / Stylish Biking Cloths?
« on: February 26, 2008, 04:21:08 pm »
Hello everyone, I plan to bike the northern tier this summer and I'm starting to look around at clothing for the ride. I read that most people's pack lists include a few bike jerseys and bike shorts. Personally all the bike jerseys and especially bike shorts are unappealing to me esthetically. I'm hoping to make all my bike cloths also clothing i can wear normally.

So does anyone know of a source of stylish biking cloths for a young man like myself?

Or more so, would i be setting myself up for bad rashes if I try to stick to khaki shorts and the like?

What can i do to stay comfy on long rides, while avoiding the spandex shorts? hahaa


General Discussion / Bringing pets on long trips?

I'm planning a cross country ride next summer along the northern tier but recently I've been thinking about getting a dog, a welsh corgi to be exact. So now im wondering how feasible it is to bring a pet along on a long trip like this.

I would be traveling at a medium pace, around 65 miles a day. The dog would still be a puppy but probably almost a year old by the time we'd set off.

I'm assuming i'd have to bring extra equipment and supplies like dog food, leash, bowl, lil doggy helmet (lol). Since the breed is small i could prob keep him on a handlebar bag type thing and i'm probably going to be using a trailer over panniers. So maybe it would like to hang in the trailer too if i can afford a snug little spot for him to sit in.

Has anyone tried bringing their pets with them or have any info on something like it? Perhaps i'm just wishful thinking =D
