Fred or not?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

That's not a saddle pad. It's a giant borscht gel pack.

Now that guy's hardcore. He's going on a long, difficult ride on a bike that's probably as comfortable as riding a shopping cart over cobblestones. He's not a Fred in my book but I'm suspecting this one is:
