I wish I had invested in lycra when I was an embryo in the mid 80s. I would have more wealth than I would know what to do with. Considering the stock prices rises that would have come with body suits, leotards and exercise shorts – circa 1988 Olivia Newton John’s Physical ringing bells? – and of course other athletic sports wear.
With the green conscience on the rise, it seems like more and more cyclists are appearing in the bigger cities, and Australian CBDs and suburbs are adopting bicycle lanes to encourage them.
The downside of this, is old dudes (at least in my town) rocking up, rephrase INVADING my cafes and my sight with their super-too-tight lycra body suits. While I think it is wonderful that they are keeping fit, some things should be left to the imagination…especially if it belongs to an old wrinkly man.
