    If you have to ask, you know the answer.

    Erm, do you spend all day in your lycra?!

    Just wear your work clothes to the pub and get changed before heading home… SOP

    a cycling jersey with normal shorts would be just about acceptable, if you’d literally just stepped off the bike. lycra shorts with nothing over them is going too far. you’d be rightly laughed at for the duration, as well.

    mate once turned up for drinks at the pub after work in the City in his Lycra and got royally destroyed despite being next to his (colour-matched) bike – it didn’t help that all of us refused to sit next to him!

    It may be normal to us, but that sort of thing is why people think cyclists are weirdos and don’t want to ride a bike for fear of being ‘like one of them’ )

    Can you ride to work in normal clothes? How far is it? Under 5-6 miles and it’s easy enough, more is ok at a leisurely pace.

    for **** sake. are you guys serious? what are we? about 12?

    for **** sake. are you guys serious?

    Yes. Because strutting around in lycra makes you look like one of two things

    1. A sex offender
    2. The gayest man who ever walked the earth. Someone who makes Louise Spence look like Arnie. If they don’t know you’re on a bike, people will presume your roller-blades are just out of view

    You may want to convince yourself there are other options. There aren’t!

    There are only two places that Lycra is ever acceptable unless you are a processional athlete.

    1. Socks
    2. Underpants

    This! and 1 to an extent is what the people of the newly named Staines-Upon-Thames will make of the thinest man in the world in tight lycra.

    My own kids call me ‘Stick man’

    No way do you want to be anywhere other than on your bike in your Spandex pants

    Take a thin pair of trackies along or something

    I’ve never had the balls to do it in lycra short and a top but I have done baggies and lycra.

    I hadn’t thought of that – even more of a NO than before.

    And I just had to google staines-upon-thames to see if that was a joke – it’s not.. well, it is, but it’s true. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Struggling to find an argument against that.

    In fact, I might get it printed on a Teeshirt 8)

    Binners you have deepseated issues with your sexuality don’t you? The second you step away from your bike in any cycle clothing you uually look like a bit of a dick but having said that I did once somehow manage to pull a barmaid while wraring lycra in a pub and another time propositioned by a prostitute, still been chatted up by more men than women while wearing it tho.

    I see there are still a few people who aren’t troubled with the curse of self-awareness.

    You know whenever you walk into the pub and every time, it seems like somebody must have just told a cracking joke! What… with all the obvious hilarity being expressed by every single person in there

    Well I hate to tell you this…. erm … there’s no easy way of putting this……

    erm your none cycling buddies, hell, considering the view on here your cycling buddies too. Lycra is just not a good look off the bike, even if wiggins walked into a pub after a ride in his yellow TDF winners outfit he’d get the pish ripped. If I think I’m going to be off the bike but if I’m on a road ride or it’s too hot for proper baggies I’ll put some footy shorts on over the top of my cycling shorts. Most cycling tops aren’t full on skinsuit jobs so not bothered, if your gut strains your cycle shirts I’d maybe suggest something a bit baggier for the pub.

    so what? he’s a grown man. some of you sensitive little kids need to MTFU.

    some fat **** laughs at me in my lycra? i don’t give a shit. sad old bar-propping-brewers-droop-can’t-see-his-nob-for-fat sod should be dead a looong time before me. who’s laughing then?

    but i presume you think you look cool in your ‘baggies’ with your jawbones and and your 5:10s and your matching pads strapped to your camel back eh?

    now that’s the real **** joke. mountainbikers thinking THEY are cool.

    I do normally wear baggies over if I’m off to the pub. But its mega hot down here and I fancied riding the proper road bike in fast, rather than the fixie, so lycra it was this morning.

    tracknicko – this thread was meant to be a little light hearted!

    oh dear

    but i presume you think you look cool in your ‘baggies’ with your jawbones and and your 5:10s and your matching pads strapped to your camel back eh?

    Remember I was telling you about this ‘self-awareness’ thing. You best look it up. I’m not delusional enough to think i look cool EVER.

    You seem to be struggling with the concept though

    What if he’s not fat? What if he in a lot better shape than you?
    What if everyone in the pub is in better shape than you. And there you are looking pathetically weedy in lycra with the outline of your pitiful penis obvious to all of the well-endowed adonis’.
    Who’s laughing then?

    Why does it have to be a fat bloke who’s laughing at you.

    What if it’s a slim well dressed guy, who’s younger and healthier than you and likely to live longer.

    Would that make a difference.

    (you seem to imply that it would in your comment above)
