The people in Europe and Asia know
that you can dress like a regular person using a bike as the bike for the most part never left their sides over the years and generations. The people in North America banish the bike to a child's toy level for many, many years. Or if they become a cyclist, they must dress the part as Lance clones.
I am happy to say that is rapidly changing even in car worshiping Southern California. I see more and more "regular" non-spandex wearing average people now using bikes, just like their other old world continent counterparts.
