You bike a lot.
Your pants wear out. Fast.
Re: Womens Apparel
Since most women don't opt to wear Carhartts day in and day out, these might be a nice solution for the colder months ahead... Wool Riding Britches by Shelia Moon which have a reinforced seat for riding, a high waist (awesome) and pleats at the knee for mobility. I have friends who take their pants to the tailors to have them patch up the seat of their pants but am fond of how my friend Sara reinforced her jeans with navy blue leather patches herself.
For womens cycling wear Team Estrogen is generally awesome.
