    I saw possibly the best commuter getup I’ve ever seen this morning: full lycra, pisspot, balaclava and tinted goggles for city commuting on a road bike. Can anybody top this?

    thats not far off my GF’s get up for her lunchtime blast on the bike – you just need to add ski-mitts (for 8 months of the year). Riding through the next village she passed some 5 year old girls playing in their front garden who shouted after her

    “hey lady! hey laaaaaady!……. you made me wet ma self!”

    Full Skins compression gear, a smattering of Assos and Rapha and aero helmet.

    On a Boris Bike.

    I think we have a winner…

    I can only assume/hope that he had dropped off his TT bike at the bike shop en route to work, and that he was due to be actually racing TT later in the evening. There’s no other explanation that is acceptable.

    At least they’re our riding. Who gives a shit what anyone else wears. Can the op tell us what he was wearing when he rode to work.

    Full aero is the only way one should dress for a spin on a Boris Bike I’ll have you know. 😉

    Black Lycra, in fact black light everything, and the most shit lights ever.

    Some folk have obviously had enough of life…

    I regularly see a rider wearing orange running shorts, vest and Rayban style shades – same kit whatever the season or weather…..

    I see a random guy when I drive my commute, obviously at a different time than when on the bike.

    He’s always riding a fully blinged up Cervelo R5.

    I normally see him a full set of Royal Racing or TLD pyjamas & a full face lid.
