Fox River Trail and Triathlon Socks

The weather is warm and you already have your bike out.  Do you have the right socks for the endless miles of trail and pavement?  The Fox River Triathlon and Trail socks were designed for activities like mountain and road biking in mind.  I will be testing four pairs of these socks over the next three months mainly while on my mountain bike and road bike.  Click here to see my initial review of the socks.
