There's nothing more unsavoury than middle-aged men in skin tight lycra.

Yes know you are trying to shave a few seconds off your personal best but think of the unfortunates that have suffer the horror as you wobble by.

Further more the use of speedos whilst riding a bicycle is totally unjustified.

If Roger Bannister can run a 4 minute mile in sensible cotton then who needs lycra?
