The Bike Bubble

This morning i saw several people riding to work. One of them wasn't wearing a shirt. I thought his back hair was going to attack me if i got too close. One woman was wearing pretty pink patterny bike shorts and pink socks. And sandals. Another was wearing lime green leggings and a flap-hat.
Does the fact that you're riding a bike somehow render you outside the realms of common decency? Are you struggling with a family curse which magically transfigures you into some kind of Bag Lady when buttock touches saddle? Is there some kind of Bike Bubble that makes it ok to wear outfits from the dress-up box?
You've got a lot to answer for, ride-to-work set.

Careful... Me be bike boy. My disfigurment is that because of the type of riding i do, i get dubbed "XTREME". Which kinda makes me feel ill. Please don't judge me by my imposed social label:(

Few, I would never do anything so practical on one of my bikes. I'm so impractical that i have 2, and neither of them are any good for actual commuting.
