You appreciate why the cafe has that rule. The cyclists in lycra and jeggings and tights not to be worn as pants is a courtesy to other people. You don't walk into a restaurant in your underwear and expect to get served right? So Think about lycra, it's skin tight, thin and very revealing, when you're actually cycling it's not so bad, but if you walk into a shop like that, it looks really bad. it's like walking into a shop in speedos...
It makes sense to me, but then I don't go out cycling and stop at a cafe with friends for coffee part way through the ride.
I go out, I pedal for an hour or 2, I get home, shower, put normal clothes back on.
It's not just cycalists in lyrcra they don't serve. they won't serve you if you're inappropriately dressed, the same way you wouldn't expect them to be walking around in under garments and aprons, why should they let customers do it? if you walked in wearing a mini skirt with your ass hanging out, they would ask you to leave too, it's not an attack on cycalists, it's just an extension of manners really.
