Riley Lightweight Bike Short
This extra lightweight short is your new BFF on those hotter days. The new Riley features a 10" inseam and an elastic back on the waistband for a little extra forgiveness around the midsection. The Riley is made up of 90% recycled poly / 10% spandex blend for a perfect, breathable ride.
Available in sizes 0-16.

I love the print but the waist is too big. My waist measures 32 and hips 39 and most of my shorts are size 10 as is the Riley short I purchased. The waist could be another 2 inches smaller for a good fit. The hips also fit a little loose but not a big deal. Since I bought it on sale I can't return it. I did reach out to customer support to help with sizing and they suggested a size 10. Will not be wearing on the bike but maybe around town. Bike shorts should have a waist adjustment as who wants to add a belt for biking. Love the prints and colors.
These are my new favorite shorts for summer. I am typically a longer inseam gal, but these are long enough for my long legs to feel covered. The fabric weight is so light and breathable. The stretch is perfect. I love the added stretch to the waist band. I wear a 10 in the Freel and also wear a 10 in the Riley, but the Riley fits a touch more relaxed. Would HIGHLY recommend this short for hot and/or long summer pedals.
WE are experiencing hot and steamy weather in the NE right now. My go to short is the Freel. However, when it gets this hot and sticky, a lighter short is nice and preferred. So I recently purchased these. I am happy with my purchase, and hope you have additional patters in this short inthe future. In the new freel short, I wear a 6. In this short I wear a 4.
Love the cute pattern. Really wanted the knee-length shorts but couldn’t find them in a size 2. I don’t like the elastic on the waist—on me, it makes the shorts gap in the back. I like the style of the Happy Hour shorts better but not the pattern—not a fan of drinking culture.
This style has solved my problem with the Freel and Kaewah styles! I love both and have several pairs of each, but the waist on both is a little big since I have to size up to an 8 to accommodate my hips. The waistband in the back of the Riley eliminates this problem and they fit perfectly. PLEASE add more prints in this style. Great, lightweight summer short. I like the shorter length without being too short! (I still ordered an 8…5’6”, 135 lbs…because I wanted them loose in the hips. They are perfect).
