The last week of rides have been tough for many reasons. The biggest pain in the ass factor has been the 30 plus MPH wind gusts that seem to be in my face in every direction. While that is really annoying, I noticed that even when I have been riding on flat roads with no wind, it just seemed more difficult.
At first, I was sure my tires were low and just needed some air. That didn’t help. Then I thought my fenders or brakes must be rubbing, NOPE! I even thought it might just be that my legs are tired because I attempted to run once or twice lately but that not it.
I rode home last night and was blown away at how easy my ride felt. I hadn’t felt this good in weeks and suddenly realized why. It’s these god damn Bieber jeans, as in Justin Bieber. I call them my “skinny jeans” because they were so tight when I got them but I thought I had stretched them to meet my standards.
I was wrong, they are WAY TOO TIGHT. I had on sweatpants last night and it was AWESOME. So free and flowing, it was just SO easy to peddle!
