Just saw a sick sight tonight

After I loaded up my bike after a 20 mile run i was driving back on the road with the wife and kids. It was almost dark and had my lights on. I noticed up the road a ways was a biker hugging the shoulder. As I approached, i slowed a bit until it was safe to pass. Upon doing so the lights on my jeep shinned on the biker revealing an awful site. You could see straight through his spandex shorts due to the bright Jeep lights. I almost gagged. Seeing a naked like butt of a guy pedaling wasnt good for my eyes. My wife was sick to. Dont ride at night spandex people! Either that or wear a long cape!

The bicycle shorts have padding in them. So even if you could see through the spandex part, it couldn't have been that bad. Am I missing something?

I swear I thought at first someone hit a cyclist and left him on the side of the road in the dark.

was he out of shape? my g/f won't stop staring at the racers who ride around here, so I'm guessing it's not that bad when they're in shape

Maybe he couldn't afford new shorts. Maybe he was cycling to get rid of the extra weight.

This is another reason why you always want really good lights and reflectors... to create a diversion

I think the fact you could not turn your gaze away speaks more about you
than
the cyclist with worn out shorts

Why do you put the bike on a car after a run?

Were you going to the cycling portion of your personal duathlon?

Sorry, just couldn't help it.

Did drivers pass the cyclist closer or farther on average? If farther this could be a new trend in bike safety.

Isn't the key to safety being noticed?

Why do you care about man's butt at all?
Why looking at man's butt makes your wife sick?
Would looking at woman's butt make you sick?

I'll bet anything the OP will be cruising that stretch of road pretty regularly from now on hoping to get another glimpse of man butt.
