• For long distance rides, i find i need some padded lycra shorts for riding. I'm OK with that. However, your classic cycling jersey with all the logos and stuff doesn't make me feel great wearing it. On the other hand, the pockets are real handy...

    Has anyone got a solution of how to avoid the classic cycling jersey, but still get the function? I just don't want to look like someone taking it all a bit too seriously

    I was considering tie dying a white jersey, but I'm not sure how achievable that is...

    I also wish someone would just make some tight denim cutoff shorts with a chamois

    Sounds like you're taking it pretty seriously.

    I used to avoid a lot of lycra, for similar reasons, and some others. Then I realised it really was the most functional and effective gear for cycling.

    I sometimes wear t shirts and shorts on 'casual' longer rides but it's definitely less comfortable, for me anyway.

    You should wear whatever you feel comfortable in and works best for you. I guess if jean shorts are comfortable for 200k you should go for it...
