It’s Official: MAMiLs Exist!

orangelongiammamil.pngIt seems like those good folks at OxfordDictionaries.com have added the word ‘Mamil’ to their weighty tome. OK so it’s not the OED, but it’s in the dictionary!

 

The full definition is:-

 

[themify_box style=”comment rounded light-blue” ]Mamil, n.: (Brit. informal) acronym: middle-aged man in Lycra. A middle-aged man who is a very keen road cyclist, typically one who rides an expensive bike and wears the type of clothing associated with professional cyclists[/themify_box]

What do you think? Is it a fair and accurate description?
