So my bike shorts I ordered came in today. Due to household plumbing issues and having to call out a plumber to get it all squared away, I did not get to go on a long ride today like I wanted. However, I rode my bike to the gym tonight when I went to workout. While its not a long ride (less than a mile) I could tell that they were going to be a welcome addition to my cycling apparel.
I had went and bought a memory foam seat cover as a temporary band-aid until the shorts could get here and that helped some. I left it on there for my ride to the gym and that with the shorts made for a comfortable ride. In addition to that, I hit the rowing machine tonight for a mile and a half row and dear Lord that was even better. That hard seat on the rowing machine makes for an uncomfortable hind end on longer rows. I had been rowing as much as four miles but stopped doing that after a couple times and dropped to shorter distances to avoid those issues.
The ones I got are just a tinge tight. The next size up, based on the information they had for sizing, would have been too big. These fit but could use just a touch more room. Which I hope to get as I continue to burn the fat off from the workouts.
Its a shame its starting to get cooler. Im going to have to get out tomorrow and ride a few miles. The grass needs to be mowed, but I think testing out my new bike shorts is a higher priority
