Hikin' & Bikin' Trousers
Once in a blue moon a guy receives a gift that he never would've bought for himself but is willing to in the future if he ever needs another one. Last Father's Day my adorable wife bought me a pair of pants for bicycling that I've become fond of also wearing for hiking or just taking it easy at home. They're tough as nails, lightweight, quick-drying, comfortable and, thanks to a "velcro" cuff adjuster, you can even adjust them to wear as knickers when you're riding a bike on a muggy, southwestern Indiana day in August. They're made in the USA and they come from the folks at Rivendell Bicycle Works.
