Bikini Bicyclist Gets a Lot of Attention [video]

Tallahassee's Bikini Bicyclist loves to ride, with little to hide. Another reason to love Florida.

I don't understand how riding around in pair of bikini drawers crammed up your ass is more comfortable than biker shorts.....

Now that they got a bike for him, safety gear would be the next logical contribution. Meh.

Oh, maybe not. Since reading to the bottom of the article and seeing that he wears a good luck charm, there's no need to consider safety precautions. Silly me.

(That's just wrong.)

I, for one, agree completely, although he just looks so vulnerable. The horror stories about riding in FLA around cagers are just that, horror.

i do think, with a facebook page and many local fans (now), that he definitely has some folks keeping an eye on him. i hope.

i love that he could care less what others thought of him!

I understand that in Florida the car drivers are aggressive and always say the don't see the bikers. Well I imagine this guy get "seen" very easily, and I would go out of my way to give him more than 3ft of passing room. So he may be on to something here. In our normal lives so many things are brightly colored and half armored that we ignore them (read your average bike rider there). So a mostly naked older gentleman would still be considered extraordinary and spotted easily. I think his only crash concerns should be from road debris.

I doubt any of us expected to see what we saw. How come no one's mentioned he's missing the other half to his bikini?

Most of us were too busy trying to keep supper down to even consider that; are you drunk?

Another reason for me never to go back to FL.......
