...that I'm giving in to the dark side.
I won these cycling socks by participating in Bike to Work Week. I never understood the need for cycling SOCKS. Having tried them, I like them well enough. They're much lighter than the cotton socks I normally wear.
Prior to scout camp I bought some more socks that were billed as "breathable" and seem to be made of the same fabric. I'm not giving up the short cotton socks, but the new socks (cycle-specific or not) are a welcome addition.
But wait, there's more evidence that I'm becoming less "Fred" to come.
