Hi everyone, a good friend of mine suffers every summer because she has to wear bib tights ( Muslim girl - modesty n al that)
Does anyone know where she can purchase thin or very light weigh pairs! Thanks

    I'd probably go with shorts and Lycra legs. You won't even need the Roubaix kit.

    Agree. Like in summer you can get lightweight tops with arm screens to protect from UV, I would find a similar solution to the legs if you can

    Maybe try some lightweight workout leggings with a thin pair of padded shorts over/underneath.

    My wife has these lightweight gym leggings with mesh windows which might help keep her cool.
    Dunno if that satisfies the modesty requirements, it tends to be a moving goalpost depending on who's doing the judging.

    Personally speaking I don't see how wearing shorts compared to tights is less modest though.... both are figure hugging.

    The other alternative is to wear leg warmers when close to the house and then rip em off for the rest of the ride until you come close to home and then slide them back on. Nobody will be none the wiser.
