I’ve seen the see-through bike shorts twice in the last three weeks, and both times they were Rapha shorts. Rapha is not a cheap brand, and I highly doubt they’re shorts are supposed to be semi-transparent, so it’s probably one of two things:
- The rider is wearing his expensive shorts as much as possible to squeak out every cent of value, or
- The rider is too vain to buy the right size shorts and is squeezing into the size they think they should be.
My shorts are nowhere near as nice, but they’re about one-ninth the price so I’ll live with them.

If anyone ever looks at this in the future, they will wonder why I was having lunch with the Governor at a laundry. Or anywhere, really.
