You may still be shrouded in your winter cycle clothing during this British spring cold snap, but one man in Exeter, Devon, has been seen cycling in the city without any trousers or pants.

Devon and Cornwall Police are appealing for information to help identify the half-dressed rider following two incidents of indecent exposure.

The latest incident took place on Monday evening (April 25), when the man was seen cycling on Market Street in the early evening.

Police believe it is the same man who was also seen riding on Market Street on April 18 at around 4am. He went to ride down Smythen Street, Stepcote Hill and Western Way.

His upper body was clothed in a dark-coloured hooded top. According to police, witnesses describe the man as being in his 20s or 30s, with collar length scruffy hair and riding a dark-coloured bicycle.

Anyone with information on the identity of the mystery cyclist can contact the police via email at 101@dc.police.uk, quoting reference 825, or by telephoning Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
