there's a bra thread?

those things cause cancer.

coupled with panties, it's a double whammy.

I wondered why I couldn't find my hoodie. just when my scabies were almost healed, too.

Riding a lot of km at speed denounce any potential areas for rubbing/chafing, and I've never had any problems.

Unless you cast getting dressed for a pre-work ride and forgetting to put underwear in your bag.... currently wearing running shorts under my dress!!!

I forgot my whole suit once. I had to nip to the local shops and buy a dark skirt and a white blouse. Lucky it was hot or I'd have had to fork out for a jacket I didn't need as well

Nylon running shorts. If it's cool, I wear tights under them. Neither commando nor underwear. Nylon dries really quickly and is very light. Only need 1 pair.

Long undies makes sense to protect against cool nights but even in hot weather might also prevent stinking up the sleeping bag?

I wear cycling shorts around the clock when on a bike trip. I don't waste my time changing clothes other than once every couple of days so I clean the shorts out in sink somewhere. I sleep in them and bike in them. Saves weight and pack space.

Very uncomfortable to be wearing bike shorts day in and day out. No were near worth it to save a few ounces imho.

Bike shorts can vary a lot in comfort, maybe some esp w/thinner pad are tolerable enough.

I find cycling shorts uncomfortable when not riding. I'll bring a skirt to change under if I expect there won't be a "proper " place to change. or just wear the skirt. Handy for times like driving to a day ride, long break, not setting my tent up yet, others.
