    I wear bibshorts. If I attempted to take them off first I would end up looking like some lycra'd Escher drawing on the floor

    I just walk straight into the shower wearing the whole lot. Double benefits of washing myself and my clothes twice a day. Plus you can make the same set of clothes last all week. Mmmmm, fresh!

    I take off my top first, admire myself in the mirror, remove shorts and admire myself in the mirror again. :lol::lol::lol:

    the more you say the more i worry about you


    i'm not sure i have a routine to be honest - it's whatever occurs to me to take off first - usually shoes, socks, top, and so on - but not necessarily.

    Do they help prevent friction burns on your knees?

    Top.

    I learned some years ago (can't remember where) that a Gentleman should always remove clothes in the presence of a Lady in this order to avoid appearing ridiculous:

    Shoes;
    Shirt;
    Socks;
    Trousers;
    Underpants.

















    But leave the spats on if she fancies that sort of thing.

    Armwarmers then shoes then shorts then top before the female members of staff turn up, don't want her getting too excited at the site of my toned abdomen :lol:
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    No serious cyclist uses shorts these days, suuuuuuurely? :) Bibshorts is the only way :)

    It's okay, when they read your spelling they'll no longer be interested? Or was that a witty pun :p

    For the record I use shorts, i don't find they move about and are plenty comfy.

    Bit cold at this time of year, brass monkeys on the old chestnuts and whatever, but when it's summer I let it all hang...errr, ah - skin suit, ahem....<<shuffles off>>

    It's just a hill. Get over it.

    If arriving after 8am then jacket off first before wandering upstairs. It's the base layer, the ladies love the base layer.

    Just not the sweaty Welshman with helmet hair within aforementioned base...

    The shower in your kit idea is genius btw.
