Jimmy and his Specialized Crux Carbon Cyclocross bike.

Rides a Specialized Crux Carbon Cyclocross bike.
Shot on State Street in Santa Barbara, CA.
Just back from a 50-mile ride.

I tend not to like the Spandex Army. Personally, I think riding kit is a little silly. But that’s my $0.02 and I will never tell anyone else not to wear it. Some people (not me) look downright sexy in kit. We’re all cyclists. To quote Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde: “Exercise creates endorphins. Endorphins make people happy.” I think that is for the most part true: unless you are on PEDs then you are just a jerk, straight up. Unless you are in the camp that thinks that professional cyclists don’t have a choice but to turn to doping. Hey, all I have to say is, if doping has been the norm in professional cycling for so many years, the UCI should either legalize PEDs or the cyclists should just admit they use them and stop lying to everyone.

In any case, the people who ride bikes and love it, whether they wear the uniform of the Lycra Mafia or not, are the real athletes. It doesn’t even matter if you are competing or not. It only matters that you have two wheels on the ground at all times.
