I know some of you good folks think that my CYCLEBUTTCRACK jersey is out there. You snicker when I ride by, “Whoa, look at that dude’s jersey, it’s a BUTTCRACK”. (It’s ok, I know you’re jealous!) But let me tell you, multi-day rides bring out the some really interesting outfits. Take this guy- I know the photo isn’t the best, but I didn’t want to get too close for fear of bouncing off the INFLATED BUTT. Enough said. At least my jersey has pockets in it.
Now these folks…I’m not sure how they don’t sweat off all that body paint. It’s hot here in Iowa, and humid. Luckily they don’t ride, they are part of the extravaganza that occur at pass through towns and overnight towns along the way. I met these people in Knoxville, IA and they really stole the show! See https://www.facebook.com/bodybysvec for more info! There are also jugglers, street musicians, wrestlers and anything else you can imagine.
Now there’s this guy here. Yeah, has a keyboard attached to his bicycle. I like music as much as the next guy, but that just looks like way too much work. But whatever makes you happy, I guess!
Then we’ve got the entertainers. Lots of them along the way at all the pass through towns. They’re great and take the mind off the heat and any possible pain you might be feeling in all the various parts of your anatomy. Now being from the great Pacific Northwest, I see utilikilts fairly often. Too often if you ask me. Really, dudes in skirts? These guys did a pretty good line dance, though, I’ll give them that!
