    Aside from the appropriate head gear, I’ve learned that suitable pants also come in handy when taking a ride on your two-wheeler. Not the right kind can get caught up with your bike. There are plenty of good choices out there, here’s one http://www.s3performance.com.au/shop/apparel/road-bike-gear/kevlar-jeans/120303 that I’ve tried. It’s nice, actually.

    I’m a fan of Just Ride by Grant Petersen. And I look terrible in Lycra and spandex.
