There aren't too many places a cyclist can go dressed in Lycra shorts and not look out of place. If you do a lot of commuting or even just leisure pleasure riding that will often end at a shop or cafe, you may want to consider slipping into a Louis Garneau Women's Rio Skort. This is not just another active-wear skort; this is a skirt combined with a detachable cycling short. We're talking a real cycling short, so that you can expect to be able to put in real miles in this combo without having to worry about a sore backside later. The inner shorts are made from a material called Drytex 2002, which has been designed to provide optimal moisture management and temperature control. For the leg cuffs, they use the Powerband, which is a compression cuff that supports the thigh without causing undo pressure, while the waist is the HuggFit waist to help evenly distribute pressure around the waist. With an eight-inch inseam, these will be slightly shorter than your regular Louis Garneau shorts, but it will work very well with the skirt length. Since the inner shorts are detachable, you can wear them with the skirt, or the skirt all on its own. You can also use the inner shorts with another skirt or under shorts, if you are commuting or doing a lot of urban riding. The chamois for the shorts is a lot more effective than you are maybe used to finding in these sorts of mini-shorts. It has been designed to fit according to the shape of your body, with the type of padding that a cyclist needs, but with a compact shape that will keep it from seeming too bulky as you are walking around a city center or looking for a seat in the coffee shop. Made from high-density foam, you can expect excellent support and the four-way stretch material will work with you while riding.. The skirt itself is a combination of the Louis Garneau fabrics Silken Flex and Silken Flex Light. Both are very stretchable, light fabrics that are perfect for hot days either in the saddle or in the city. Eas...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
