One advantage to sport cycling clothing…
It works as a swimming attire.
Guys can just wear swim trunks on the bike, but a woman’s bathing suit seams are totally in the wrong place for that. Street clothes don’t work well as swim-wear. Changing into a swim suit when you’re all sticky from a ride is more trouble than it’s worth. But spandex shorts and a lycra jersey work great! I went straight from the bike to the pool.
I feel so much better now!
