The Great Victorian Bike Ride is a rainbow of multi-coloured lycra in all shapes and sizes. It's strange how after just a couple of days you begin to feel comfortable getting around in skin tight shorts. Still, as comfortable as they are guys, we need to draw the line somewhere. They just don't leave enough to the imagination.
Wearing your knicks to the pub in the evening is no fun for anyone. Sure, enjoy a few ales with your friends on the way to the campsite. After you've set up your tent though, have a shower and ditch the sweaty lycra - even wash them!
There really are no excuses here so I propose a complete ban on lycra after dark. Offenders should be immediately ejected from the ride (as well as the pub) for their atrocity and lycra-wearing privileges be revoked for 6 months. For lesser offences such as repeated public crotch rearrangement or wearing any light-coloured knicks, I suggest a penalty of one day's riding in the 'Jeans of Chafing'.
