Middle aged men in Lycra a term coined by leading market research firm Mintel.

Michael Oliver, who wrote the report, said: "Thirty or 40 years ago, people would ride a bike for economic reasons, but our research suggests that nowadays a bicycle is more a lifestyle addition, a way of demonstrating how affluent you are."

The research shows that growth in bike sales is being propelled by 35- to 45-year-old men with families, who instead of going off and buying a sports car as they approach middle age now go for high-end bike instead.
Spring will usually bring Mamils out of hibernation in search of fresh Lycra and carbon fiber - their staple diet.

Acronym for Middle Aged Man (or Men) In Lycra.
Those cyclists (typically roadies or XC guys) with middle age spread and squeezed into VERY unflattering lycra that you see at coffee shops or breakfast spots after their morning ride .
