“Dear PoPville,

I’m wondering what people think about biking shirtless. I have a 6 mile commute and am not looking forward to biking home in 90+ degree heat. I understand bike jerseys are good for this but I’ve always avoided buying biking gear. I don’t want to dress like a middle aged Lance Armstrong wannabee. I wonder if there is any consensus on biking shirtless. I wouldn’t be doing it to show off or anything, it’s just hot. Ultimately I guess I’ll do it if I feel like it but I want to know if I’ll be offending everyone I pass?”
