Fine except for the lycra bit (shudder )
Nowt wrong with Lycra!
Depends who is wearing it !!
I rest my case
Granted if you look like 10lb of tatties in a 5lb bag then yep I agree. Some of us however are pure athletes
Free? I think not!
True, not sure how "free" gets in there...
Back to lycra: it doesn't flap. Hood enough for me, I hate flappiness when riding! Also helps to stop me flapping...ok, not going there...
Well, it's free at the point of use. Cheap would be better, though.
I’ve just invested in some skin tight Lycra tights and they’re absolutely awesome. Better than my trousers.
Why is the saddle fitted to the handlebar stem?
I can't help feeling they'd get a better sign up rate if instead of advertising a 'healthy free way to get around and get fit', they said 'cycle regularly and you can eat all the cake you want, and you don't have to wear lycra'. I think people will really get on board with that....That's how public health works, incentivize with what they really want
I am more impressed by a person who looks like that riding a bike than some obviously fit guy. I think I am not the only one who has held back from doing something I would enjoy because I would be the object of derision. Having said that I don't wear lycra but I do kinda miss woolen shorts with real chamois.
