The thought counts, but...

Mother: whilst your gift of thermal waterproof trousers was appreciated, I'm afraid it was a rather misguided idea – they're not at all "ideal for the bike".

Firstly, they don't fit the bike. I think I'm supposed to wear them. (Sorry.)

Secondly, the last thing an energetic cyclist needs is a heat-retaining covering for the legs. I'm burning up!

Thirdly, Aldi may be cheap, but the quality of their goods is abysmal. My legs are soaked from the knees down. Why do you still shop there?

Anyway, thanks, but I wouldn't recommend the concept or Aldi's expression of it to other cyclists.
