I'm looking at buying some shorts for my road group rides and was wondering if there is and type of short between theloose baggys and the tight fitting lycra. I'd really like something in between the two. thanks
Shop around--there's a lot of variation.cory

Only time I wear Lycra is in cold weather, under tights. From spring through fall, I wear mountain bike shorts--less geeky, plus you can walk around comfortably. There's a lot of variation in the bagginess. I bought some Oakleys from Sierra Trading Post a couple of weeks ago that might be what you're looking for, got just a little looseness, but they don't flap.

Lycra shorts with a tan shell. Not actually baggy, they look like tan shorts. I like having pockets, and have even worn them at work and nobody noticed I was wearing cycling shorts.

The only thing baggies are good for is hiding the choad at the coffee shop. If you have decent quality shorts they shouldnt be so thin that see through is a problem, but be aware that you will no longer be able to lie about your package anymore. Cons of baggies are that they are constantly getting caught on the saddle. I use a pair of baggies for MTB (they have a built in lycra short) but they are mostly a fashion statement. Traditional Lycra has better function.
