Not at all! Many of our best rides have been in baggy clothes. You should wear whatever feels good to you and makes you want to ride more. Spandex does have its advantages in terms of movement, breathability, and chamois padding. If you don’t feel comfortable in tight clothing, companies like Elevenpine make some fantastic crossover gear. Plus, spandex shorts with pads can always be paired with less form-fitting overshorts. Jerseys with pockets make carrying snacks a lot easier and come in all sorts of cool designs. If you prefer something less revealing, you can always keep snacks in a top tube bag or a small backpack.
