I didn’t carry my camera this morning so I can’t show you, but I saw an otherwise manly-looking dude riding a bike with baggy shorts over sheer patterned tights(something like the House of Holland tights pictured below) this morning.
In San Francisco I wouldn’t have thought much about this gent’s legwear, but things are a little different in San Jose. My guess: he thought he grabbed his cycling tightsbut fumbled in the morning darkness and got his wife’s instead, though I’d think they feel different. And men’s cycling tights don’t typically have feet.
In Colorado, I would wear long thermals underneath my pants to keep me warm. Here in California, winter means rain, which means rain pants over those same thermals. Otherwise, when it’s not raining, it’s rarely cold enough to wear anything special.
Men and women, what do you do when the temperature drops? Do you wear tights or leggings of some kind?
