Lycra is an odd stretchy material that occasionally is made into clothing, especially shorts.
Wearers of lycra are usually involved in sporting pursuits such as cycling or athletics. People who wear lycra have to be thin, quite insane, and happy to show the outline of their genitalia to anyone they may encounter.
For these reasons the wearers of lycra are usually found accompanied by other wearers of lycra in forests, moors and remote areas, where they can expect to meet no one except Horse Riders wearing jodphurs1, an even more eccentric item of clothing.
