    Ah yes…the weekend athlete…just a heart attack looking for a place to happen.
    (Srsly, dad…you don’t have to dress like that…helmet, yes. Lycra pants…not so much.)

    I hate helmets too, so I stoped bikeing!

    That bike in the last panel is defying the law of gravity – just like their TV set.

    It’s called a no-floor-line experiment. Stephan Pastis does it occasionally.

    I use a helmet when biking, but I draw the line at spandex shorts.

    The fanny pack is not even funny.

    The very term ‘fanny pack’ is funny if you’re British (over here, a dad does not have a fanny!)

    You’re right; there should be bike paths everywhere. Where I live they don’t have paths everywhere, but lots of them and there is always a reasonable way to get “from here to there” on a bicycle. Sadly, I can’t wear spandex without drawing chuckles anymore either. You can buy pants that have the functional parts hidden inside but it really isn’t necessary for the kind of riding I do now. I do wish someone would make a good quality (yet affordable) helmet, that didn’t look either like an extreme-sport wannabe or just silly.

    Where I live we have plenty of bike paths. And cyclists still ride on the sidewalk. I’m talking adults, on “racing bikes,” not kids. Half of them don’t even have a bell. Caveat pedestrian!

    Surely Americans can figure this out – others do. Bikes are fantastic means of conveyance – they are good for your health, good for the environment and are much quieter than cars.

    Cycling is an excuse for being a dweeb.

    Actually, the bike shorts are padded to make it more comfortable for long rides. It does feel weird to wear at first. The spandex provides good protection for the skin and helps wick away sweat.

    The good thing is bike shops sell shorts that look like regular shorts with the spandex being underneath like a liner in swim trunks. (It’s much better suited for guys who are weekend athletes)
