So you got a little addicted to Le Tour on the tv, or maybe you just couldn’t care less about it! Well, whatever you think about it, let’s celebrate the end of it at our Annual Wheel Women Social Night! Eat, drink, feast your eyes on some great bike gear and goodies, ask the…
Love these leggings and bike pants. The extra pocket is really important. Well done on putting this together. A great article that shows what can be done with a little patience and inspiration. Thanks Frau Fleur for the post and hope to see more soon.
I’ve heard it said that how cool you look in lycra padded bike shorts is inversely related to the distance from your bike. In other words, when I’m standing next to my bike, I’m cool. When I walk into the convenience store, I’ve become a dork. That being said, after donning the awkward apparel, I would never ride a bike even for the shortest ride without them. This is a classic picture on how not to wear bike shorts.
There are some things you need to know about choosing appropriate bike shorts. There are a number of different styles and lengths for the various cycling disciplines. Like any other sport, most cyclists are a bit snobbish about how they look. Mountain Bikers like to wear long shorts over their padded ones and touring bikers are similar. We’ll focus on road cycling attire for this post.
I like the idea of Phil trying out the hoop and silk for many reasons. Firstly, I think it’s cool for him to try something few men would dare. The mere fact that he has to wear tights and hold awkward poses in front of other people is difficult enough.
Also I like him to have an idea of what I do in the studio so that he’ll know what to tell other people if they asked. He can help a lot in this changing-poledancing-hoop-silk-mindsets-campaign.
Third, I want him to have a bit of background so that in the future, he can help me out when I do some stunts. While I think it’s farfetched, there’s still that little hope that he’d love it and he’d be a regular and he’d be my partner in the future but let us not get carried away!
I caught up with Sue (Metty) Metcalf on the eve of her departure from Australia to take up residence in North America.
People move countries for different reasons – for love, for work, to widen their horizons or to seek a community of kindred spirits. Metty is moving for all of these reasons, but her primary goal is to take her quest for world power domination to the next level.
Sue Metcalfe raises the bar
Sue is not chasing political power, although her vocation is to campaign for youth justice, and she will continue this advocacy in the USA. No, Metty is installing herself amongst the world’s biggest community of protein-munching, physical-power perfecters. And she isn’t there to join them, but to lead them!
Until recently, Sue’s greatest sporting achievement was being chosen for representative Netball. However, since becoming Australia’s strongest woman and winning second place in the USA in…

i Think this quote sums up the whole lose it in lycra attitude nicely:
“Nike continues to produce high-quality products that look just as good as they perform, and I say this as a former collegiate athlete. I refused to step on court without Nike mid-high socks and Nike Pro Combat spandex because when your feet or groin are irritated or chafing, I guarantee you will not perform optimally. After literally countless hours of gruesome training, you deserve to put yourself in the best position to win once game day rolls around.”
Lose the chafe – love the lycra! Thanks Mala and blogger Awkjock for this post.
