For years, I cycled in cotton socks. I wore the spandex shorts and the brightly-colored jerseys, but I really just never thought about my socks, that much.
Eventually, working at the bike shop, I decided to try out a pair of the short, thin foot covers. I never really liked ankle-length socks, so I was a bit hesitant to get into them.
But, that first ride with wicking socks was an eye-opener, and I ended up buying a few pairs of them to ride in. I continued changing into cotton socks for daily wear, though.
As years went by, I found myself wearing regular socks less and less, and bike socks more and more. Eventually, I found that I was wearing bike socks, almost constantly. Now, they are all I wear, unless I have on a suit. Then, I still wear dress socks.
I got a new dresser for my bedroom, last year. As I transferred my bike socks into their new drawer, I tried counting them. I stopped counting at 75 pairs of bike socks, and still put a few in after that.
Sock it to me!
