    What's wrong with this picture?

    How many things are "wrong" in this picture?

    I'll start:

    1. No helmet.

    I don't care at all for the gray shirt with that suit and tie. And somebody stole all his brakes and gears!
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    Well crap. I was going to post an identical thread today, and here DG goes and does it. And it's funnier than I would have come up with.

    I find this deeply disturbing on a variety of levels.

    He appears to be riding in the center lane. Must be a Critical Mass demonstrator.

    I don't know but I can tell that for sure that he's not riding in St Louis this month. If he were riding in St Louis in July while wearing that outfit, he'd be drenched with sweat.

    Still no good. This picture was taken last year after Labor Day. You can never wear a white tie after Labor Day.

    Is that the son of the Olympic Swimmer that was so popular back in the early 70's.

    Let's see, what was his name?

    Also, if it isn't a one way street he is on the wrong side of the road!
