    I dig seeing this!

    As someone who was overweight, then got skinny racing bikes, then overweight again with age and medical issues, the stigma of not being a skinny lycra-clad dude on a bike has me, more often than not, opting for a walk in the woods than be seen on a bike (yes, I’m in therapy and on meds). Very few clothing companies cater to larger boned cyclists like myself (other than the British company F.L.A.B.) or even have truer sizing. Me = XXL in street clothes, Me in cycling clothes = XXXXXXXXL. Talk about having your ego slapped in the face with a dick!! “Fuck it, I’ll walk!” is often uttered by me. Bravo for this video, I hope to see more of it and maybe an industry movement towards some updated sizing because sometimes it’s not simple math to lose weight and some of us love to ride our bikes even with a high BMI!!

    Thanks for posting, and good luck with your move.

      I always think about a thing I read years ago that still resonates with me. “A fat person who’s active is still, and aways will be healthier than a skinny person who is not.”
