Trek Women
October 10, 2007


Many people have told me that they have been inspired by my blog.  Nice.  Inspired to do what?  Have more children?  Drink more water?  Start a career as a cabaret singer?  Put down that second donut?  Dust the cobwebs off your bike and actually ride it?  Play with your children?  Fall in love with a man named Sweetness?  Dance around your house singing a song from Flashdance?  Get your own Loveman the Tech and work it out on the bike?  Visit the Trek site more often?  Whatever the case is at least I am inspiring you to do something.Underwear1_3  

About a month ago my friend Jen told me that she had been inspired and motivated by my blog.  She actually wanted to get out and ride her dusty, heavy bike that had been hanging in her garage for god knows how long.  I must have asked her a hundred times to go riding with me and finally she said yes.  She was very concerned that I would ditch her (drop her is the real cycling term) and that I would be bored out of mind.  Underwear2_3 I tried to explain to her that I was not an Olympic cyclist (which I am so not) and that if she thought I was fun off the bike that I would be even more fun on the bike.  I kept telling her that it's not about the speed but the ride itself. 

She showed up in her gear and Loveman the tech fitted her on one of the bikes from his personal bike shop.  I gave her a real cute Trek VW jersey and she looked great except for one thing.  She had major lumps in her cycling shorts and they just didn’t look right.  Well I’ll be darned, she was wearing her panties under her cycling shorts!  Not good.  The extra rubbing of the panties combined with the cycling shorts only promotes chaffing, irritation and rotting.  I gave her the big tip from the non-professional, “Take your underwear off now!”  She promptly removed her panties and immediately felt free as a bird.  As we rolled out of the driveway the Loveman proudly stated, “That’s the fastest I’ve ever gotten a woman to take her panties off at my house!” 


We met during the "She Got Bike" ride. Thanks for hang'n with me. I'd love to ride some time either with your group or some other time. Also, keep me posted if you start a women only ride. I managed to get on the bike twice this week, but have continued to go solo. I'm in Glen Arm and willing to meet anywhere.

Is that what those were for. I was using them for pasties at the tanning parlour.

I love your humor, but then again, I am secretly off beat.

My word, you are a hoot! I think it is a great idea to have real no-panties stickers made and have Trek give them out because I know I've seen WAY TOO many people wearing the undies under their bike shorts. Maybe the manufacturers should put a note with the shorts when you buy them.
Keep making me laugh!

Thanks for the heads up on NOT WEARING UNDIES with my bike shorts.

I was really tucked up wearing my underarmour shorts and bike shorts too. It was way too binding.
