- Forgetting you're wearing your helmet of other bike gear / clothing
I am acutely aware when I am wearing lycra off the bike, as without a bike I feel like a sex pest.
I spent 5 months living in a hotel, and to get to my room I had to walk through reception and the bar. Having left the bike in the car, walking through in lycra would get all number of wolf whistles and comments.
The worst thing though is post ride beers, when I sling a pair of jeans on after riding, quick blast with deodorant and to the pub. 1 becomes 2 becomes 3 becomes 4 and I wake up with my sheets covered in mud because I forgot to shower when I got home and my shins were covered in mud.Posted 5 years agoTiRedMember
Took a TC at work on Friday in my full Lycra, helmet and cycling boots because I arrived too late to change. Nobody in our open plan office batted an eyelid. Quality kit mind 😉 .
The best helmets are the ones you forget you are wearing. Never bothers me if I leave it on around the shops.Posted 5 years agosamuriMember
Can’t say I’ve ever forgotten, although I sometimes forget to put my day spectacles on rather than my riding pair which are all scratched.
Sometimes, when I go for a poo in a rush, I have a brief panic that I’ve not pulled my trousers down before actually pooing. I expect that’s a bit different to what you’re talking about. (I’ve never actually forgotten to pull my trousers down yet mind)Posted 5 years ago
