With rising temperatures come the seasons of outdoor social activities. Markets, fairs, concerts the temperate weather from April to September are rife with opportunities to pedal to enjoy a bike ride to a seasonal event. While we aren't embarrassed to air our Lycra in public, it can be nice to blend in a bit between bike rides. For outings like these, we opt for the classic, four pocket design of the Mobility Overshorts from Giro's New Road line, which strike a balance between saddle bound function and festival bound anonymity. The Mobility Overshorts are made from a cottonsynthetic twill that incorporates elastin for a four way stretch fit. The fabric's polyester elements give it fast drying and wicking properties, and the cotton keeps it soft on your skin and easy on the eyes. No race day Lycra here. We also like the shorts' high waisted cut, which takes advantage of the current trend of waistbands creeping up to where they were in the '80s and '90s to provide full coverage in the saddle, even when we're stretched out in the drops. The five inch inseam is also tailored to keeps gaps to a minimum, so our pedaling motion doesn't reveal more than our cycling prowess.
