Kilometers and Memories

Kilometers and Memories

Above are my cycling shorts that are too old, too thin, too ripped and too transparent to wear anymore. For precisely the same reason I should get rid of them, I want to keep them. I have ridden many kilometers wearing these shorts (at least 30,000 kilometers worth in this photo, likely much more) and made lots of memories. All of my Cal Cycling shorts, and most of my UCSD Cycling shorts are worn out. But they are taking up space, and I can’t imagine wearing them ever again. I intend on eventually purchasing new kits from my former cycling teams to replace these, but it won’t be the same. I am in mourning.

  1. I have a shelf in my closet stocked with the same type worn-out, memory-filled kits. Can’t bring myself to get rid of them, either.

  2. I have a whole shelf in the closet that is six feet long, a foot deep and stacked two feet high with this kind of stuff. You better get rid of it now or when your near 60 like me, you’ll never be able to part with it all.

  3. I did the “frame a couple old jerseys” thing. That way the memories are still there, but you don’t have to ride around with the Reichardtesque exposed buttcrack.
