Outdoor cycling is a great way to pack nature and exercise into your day. But careful with what you wear — loose-fitting pants can slow you down and prevent the body from properly cooling down. Opt for tight-fitting bike shorts to improve your ride and be nicer to your sweat glands. Guys, take note, you’ll also benefit from extra protection where it’s needed most.

Takeaway: Swap basketball shorts with spandex or nylon for a smoother bike ride.
