Fair enough TLW. I am definitely an outsider when it comes to cycling and am not going to pretend like I'm in the know. I also cycle a bit as well and concur it is hard work, especially legit ascents on the seat.
But your post does not answer my question: why do 99% of the cyclists I see on the road dress like they are sponsored cat 1 riders when they can barely bike 15 mph for any considerable distance? I certainly understand the need for sadddle shorts and padding, but the whole dumb matching neon get ups are just too much. Pure, vain, superficial silliness I say.
That was my only point, which BTW still has not been addressed or refuted.
