Kids, don't do this at home!
(Image from Boing Boing)We all know that recumbent riders tend to be...um...a bit different. And of course, I can understand the appeal of riding a bicycle while wearing Bermuda shorts with those cooling breezes drifting up the legs and....well...never mind.
However, I would draw the line at riding around in blue long johns and a codpiece! A man has to maintain some standards, even if he routinely leaves the house in cycling shorts and a jersey.
These examples are from Europe, where apparently they were available in size Medium only. If they caught on as fashion accessories in modern times, we'd need much larger ones.
While it may be possible to ride a recumbent while wearing something outlandish, is it really a good idea? Tomorrow, daytime high temperatures here in Oklahoma are supposed to go into the 90s again, and a suit like that above, even in stylish white, would be little more than an oven.
