Were they wearing green and white jerseys? THey were on the news- in town for gay pride. They rode 600 k to raise awareness of something or other in connection with gay pride week. You probably saw them on their way in from Ontario.
As far as I know, no one else is wearing those feather dusters, LOL. But I do sometimes see this guy riding a BENT with a stuffed dalmatian on his head.
You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. That's great...if you want to attract vermin.
