A cafe sporting an anti-Lycra sign for fun has caused a few cyclists to get their wheels in a spin.
Heathcote’s Castle Rock Cafe, which claims to be “unashamedly motorist friendly since 2008″, has a sign out the front deterring Lycra-clad cyclists from entering.
“The bicycle is a beautiful thing but they never should have invented Lycra! No Lycra shorts please,” the declaration reads.
Cafe manager Amy Grice said the sign had been put up by the old owner because of an incident with a large man in very tiny shorts.
That sort of sight was not suitable for children, she said.
I have some sympathy for the cafe owner. But I think the ban goes too far.
They should simply ban men in lycra. Few people object to to lycra-clad womenTags: lcyra
