    Bike shorts, spandex, snug fitting, fairly thin pad, good quality, bike jersey, nothing else, get over it.

    That would be smart, driver screams, covers his eyes, and jams foot down on accelerator thinking it's the brake? Around here, you'd probably get done for assault with weapon for doing that.
