A middle-aged man who is a very keen road cyclist, typically one who rides an expensive bike and wears the type of clothing associated with professional cyclists. (Oxford English Dictionary)

They are known as MAMILs (Middle Aged Men in Lycra). The term was invented in recognition of the recent explosion in popularity of cycling amongst middle-aged men. They can usually be spotted on weekend mornings – flying down the road in a cacophany of garish lycra and expensive carbon frames and wheels.

These are middle-aged, middle-class men with careers, families and mortgages. They are never going to win the Tour de France – yet they spend a huge amount of time, money and energy on cycling. Why is it so important to own the best bike and all the right gear? What compels them to choose long hours on the road over time with the family?
