I have thus far avoided posting anything about the man with the bike. The story is reported in various places, some with pictures of the individual attempting to block the camera with an outstretched hand, as if he is about to appear in Hush, hush. There is little that one can add to the lines from the reports indicating that when interrupted by the cleaners he paused only to say,
“Whit is it hen?”
And his explanation that his activity arose as a result of a “misunderstanding” due to consuming drink. (As a tee-totaller myself how drunk do you have to be to have that sort of misunderstanding?)
I am still bemused as to how best to describe the guilty man: the sheriff called him a “cycle sexualist”; but my own preference thus far is to describe him as a “pedalphile”.
Anyway, a poll to answer the pressing question of the day.
