Fat Thighs

My Thighs are Fat

Last Friday I went for a spin on my cross bike. Nothing major, some dirt, some neighborhood roads, and all that good stuff. As I rode I had the time to take in the bike fit and feel of this new cyclocross bike. I’ve had in my grummy hands for roughly a month a 2012 Ridley X-Fire for a demo with the new gig. I’ve raced it, it did splendid but I haven’t had long thought filled moments with it yet.

One thing that this bike provides is a shaped carbon top tube that flattens out to provide comfortable portage on your shoulder during cyclocross races. This also showed me quickly that my thighs are a bit chubbier than the last time I had some a cross bike (roughly 4 years.) Normally, I would get discouraged by this. Who wants fat thighs? Especially as a cyclist the fat thighs make your spandex look like stuffed sausage links. Instead I found inspiration for long rides on the bike, the goal to lose the thighs and to continue to find happiness in things I would normally be frustrated about.

Here’s to winter, fat burning, miles and fat, happy, thighs.
