With a Southern summer in full swing around our offices in North Carolina, we’re always looking for new ways to stay cool on our lunch rides. Riding in the heat of the day, when June temps can reach 95 with 90% humidity can really take it out of you, especially if you wear the wrong clothes.

While some of the new mesh climbing jerseys are great, on really sunny days we still want something that will keep us from getting a sunburn. So when the clothing guys showed us our new Sugoi RP Ice jersey and RP bib shorts— available exclusively from Performance Bicycle– we figured we’d test it out to see if it actually works.

Welcome to Chic Street Style’s annual “bikini week.” As summertime goes into full force, so does bikini season. I have always believed that fashion and glamour can translate into every aspect of your life – the beach is no exception. Kaftans, sarongs and bohemian jewelry seem to overtake my Steve Madden weekender bag.

I like to use this as a platform for fashion and as an advocate for body confidence, even in next to nothing. I will throw out this disclaimer: body-related harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. I truly believe that everyone should try to eat healthy, get those endorphin’s going on every once in a while and that confidence can overcompensate for anything that you may or may not feel so great about.

It happens to all of us. We look in the mirror. The self-criticism, nitpicking and self-depreciating comments begin to flow like the…

Pump Up the Jam – and Dance in Your Lycra


Enjoy this flashback to the 1990’s with ‘Pump Up The Jam’ by Technotronix. This video featured the lycra unitard, bum bag (fanny pack), as well as lots of dancing to house music.

Get your booty on the floor tonight…Make My Day.

Enjoy.

The unitard is back – on YouTube at least


A workout to support your love on all things lycra and Unitard. Thanks Expat Runner for this article. Check out the buns of steel!

THE EXPAT RUNNER

I was right. I’m a tight ass. The pain on the outside of my knee experienced when running downhill during the NM Galaxy 15km was (and continues to be caused) by tightness in my buttocks and hips. It’s classic ITB syndrome. I’ve been to physio twice and have been stretched and pummelled which has really helped, and I’m stretching and using a foam roller at home. Hopefully, this will sort the problem out. I doubt I will be able to do the Cyberjaya Half Marathon this coming weekend but I haven’t given up hope yet. Common sense would dictate that I give it a miss. Common what?

Anyway, I’m pretty sure I can pinpoint the origin of this butt problem. I am a victim of my own attempts at strength training. My cross-training was totally lacking despite good intentions and the knowledge that strength training is essential for running injury-free. I’m…
