Now we built the ordinary bicycle. Time to turn attention to the clothes. Now whilst Lycra is the clothing of choice for a number of cyclist who want to ride further than down to the shop I would like to consider what is appropriate for a bicycle from over 100 years ago.
I have quite a full wardrobe unfortunately as I've been reliably informed by numerous sources including stangers walking down the street they are so out of style that even the Amish would point and laugh at me while pulling on their beards.
Now the options as I see them
- Ask Brett to build the machines to build a DeLorean so I can get some original clothes.
- Break into a museum and borrow the clothes
- Ask my father (just kidding Dad)
Umm that's about it for options. So what is it exactly you wear if you ride a P-far.
Now this below is probably a little scary, for those of weak dispositions I suggest you turn away now. A very good reason why Lycra is frowned upon in the p-far fraternity.
Yes after that sight you'll need some soothing eye balm that only action men can provide.
Tweed is back so they tell me. There are a number of tweed rides around the place including Ipswich however I'm not a slightly built man so I figured finding tweed to fit could be problematic. So what to do what to do. I know the answer as always is at Lowes!
