Just so we are all clear on one matter: road cycling is the least becoming sport for a man to indulge in. There is absolutely no good reason for a man (especially one of advanced years) to wear lycra, fingerless gloves or anything that can be described as a “bib”, when out in public.
However for the city gent a bike can be an essential mode of transport. Those keen on two wheels should try out the new Priority bike. Stylish, well built and not astronomically priced.
