A cyclist commuting to work this morning has clocked on later than usual after forgetting to wear his Lycra.

“I could hardly feel the breeze flowing through my hair I was going so slowly,” said Brian Lanning.

“It almost felt as if I was going backwards.”

Lanning typically keeps up with the motorised vehicles on the road when he’s fully decked out in Lycra, but struggled to reach any sort of reasonable speed this morning wearing a normal t-shirt and shorts.

“These regular shorts just don’t have the appropriate aerodynamic qualities as my spandex shorts.”

Lanning has blamed his spandexless day on cars.
