--WE ARE A SPANDEX-FREE ZONE! Wool, cotton, and other things sheared from the animal kingdom, plucked from the field, or spun by the creepy crawly creatures are acceptable.
--Do try to match your dress to the era of your cycle. In other words, if you're riding a '70s Raleigh Pro, don't wear knickers, vest and a handlebar moustache (unless, of course, you're playing the eccentric). And if you're on a '40s New Hudson roadster please keep that orange-and-black Ti Raleigh racing jersey in the dresser drawer. In the fine art of our type of cycling, aesthetics are to the fore and the devil is in the details.
--AWARD FOR THE BEST-DRESSED Cyclist & cycle combo.
