BBC 6 Music Resident Poet, Murray Lachlan Young, and Ridley Scott Associates director/photographer Gray Hughes have teamed up to create the short film ‘Lycra Dad’. Young’s darkly comic poem celebrates the everyday men, with the film lampooning M.A.M.I.Ls (Middle Aged Men In Lycra).
To mark the film’s release you can nominate your own Lycra dad though the Lycra Dad Web App
