So right before I had my thyroidectomy, I bought myself a SUPER AWESOME MEGA COOL cycling kit as impetus to get back on the bike. It’s the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition kit.
Yes, yes. I’m a girl. So yes, having a cute new outfit is definitely a good motivator. 🙂
I only did about thirty minutes of hills but that is a start! Here are some pics of my super adorable extra cool “costume” (as the 8 year old put it).
I got matching arm warmers, too.
Do you have certain cycling clothes that you prefer above the rest? What makes them cool to you?

I like bright colors, like yellows, I have an Alaska Jersey with yellow background and with mountains (and a bear) and a field of colorful flowers which is my favorite. You look lovely by the way.
YAY for bright colors; makes us more visible on the road. Thank you for the compliment!
You’re rocking the roadie look! Very aerodymanic and lovely. Me, it’s baggies all the way. At 3 mph uphill, I’m not caring so much about the wind resistance!
Discovered last week that my cycling gear is the only ‘outdoor activity’ clothing I own – climbed a (smallish) mountain in my 3/4 baggies and DHB cycling jersey!
See, I need more of the baggie stuff for trail riding. OK Here is my question – what do you wear while trail riding to keep your legs from getting all scratched up???? NICE on the mountain – how many feet elevation???
For trail riding I tend to cover my legs in… well, scars, actually. If not from rocks, thorns and sundry geographical features, then from my pedals!
The mountain was Ben Lomond: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Lomond At 3,200ft it’s not massive, but it was a challenge for me because I don’t walk anywhere. Ever!
Here’s me at the top. In my cycling baggies and horribly white legs: https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/555170_4019528365157_2145670131_n.jpg
OK You are WAY too cool. Ben Lomand looks SO BEAUTIFUL. My legs are getting covered in scars and scabs, I guess it’s just an initiation rite!!?
Oh my gosh you guys look like you are dressed for cold weather – what was the temperature up there?
