Spandex or not, they have a right to be there just as much as you do. If they bother you that much I suggest you take public transportation.
I wear spandex when I ride my pedal bike and the attitude I have seen here regarding those of us that ride pedal bikes for great distances while wearing the best clothing designed for those rides, is simply disgusting. With that attitude you are only alienating those who could be a really good ally.
Remember, you don't have to give someone the same kind of attitude that you get. This is called being a grown-up.
