The down sides of bicycling, #2

As a result of all the biking I've been doing, my hamstrings and quads have been getting much stronger. The down side of this is that my formerly-favorite jeans now no longer quite fit — just a wee bit too snug in the thighs for me to feel comfortable wearing them to work. (Outside of work, sure. This is Oakland. Jeans tend to be worn either form-fitting or so oversized you could fit two people in them.)

This means I have to go clothes shopping. I hate clothes shopping. Bah.
