HOW TO LOOK PRO

Postby baralah » Mon Oct 29, 2012 7:44 am

Ladies,

While browsing cycling tips, I found this very funny and interesting article

http://www.cyclingtips.com.au/2008/11/how-to-look-pro/

I'm sure that most of us could relate to this. Enjoy and have a good Monday

My favourite part about this (and The Rules) is how I can read half the list and laugh, and then the other half I lower my eyes with shame... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I should rip off the Trek decal and reapply "EuroCool Poser Wannabe".

I am so getting deep dish wheels to keep up on the Saturday morning ride... those mongrels are QUICK.

Right now I don’t think it’s such a good idea to try and look as if you belong on the Pro circuit. :cry:

I know it was half in jest, but seriously...long pants and jerseys when it's anything under 20C? The only time I feel the least need for full-length gear is when it's sub 5C...nothing to do with being tough, just feel better that way. Sure, if you're forced to stop for 10 minutes+ it's chilly but how often does that happen....

Well I don't live in Hobart or Canberra and how many other cities get temps under 5C...I went out this morning in short sleeves and knicks, it was about 10C. Felt great until I got a bloody puncture...

I think it's just a case of misconversion. The original article (from the pezcycling article) read:

How to Dress for Weather. If the temperature is below 60 degrees Fahrenheit, you must wear knees or better yet, full leg warmers. If you go out of the house in 50 degree weather with bare legs, it doesn’t mean you’re tough, it just means you’re an idiot. In the summer, no matter how hot it gets, you must never wear a sleeveless jersey. Tan lines are the proud mark of a real cyclist. If you must get some additional ventilation, cut a vertical line along the inside seam of your sleeve with a pair of scissors. Not only will this help you stay cool, but it says, “my sponsors give me so many jerseys, I don’t mind wrecking one.”
