    What about biodegradable clothing for women?
    But please don't make it in larger sizes.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    So does this mean you are not going to run with my biodegradable clothing idea?

    What about edible clothing?
    I mean seriously think about it, make it out of stuff that will be good for refueling completely eliminating the need to pack snacks with you on a long ride. Plus, I bet most of us could gain a KOM or two if we started getting chased by a hungry bear.

    I think that covers all the basis.
    Organic, biodegradable, consumable and edible (but not very tasty in that form).

    Winner

    I buy silk. Bacteria and fungus does not grow on silk. Silk is generally the first thing dry in the dryer. Silk needs some texture to avoid it sticking to the skin when wet. Shirts should be long in the back to avoid the gap when bent over the handlebars. Wintersilks are available as under clothes however pants need some elastic at the ankles to keep them out of the chain. Large clothes assume you are fat this is not the case with cyclists. So a 38 waist pants has 3 inches shorter leg length this makes it harder to mount the bicycle. Same with shirts they assume a large waist size this allows the clothes to flap in the wing increasing wind resistance.
