Shoppers were left scratching their heads after this multicoloured cyclist was spotted parading through Wimbledon town centre on Saturday.

Ellen Wetterwald, who sent us this picture of the mystery man on social networking website Twitter, said: “I just love this fun guy cycling around the streets of Wimbledon, but does anyone know what he’s about?”

Another reader, Jodie, commented: “I’ve seen him. It’s a bit freaky, like the child catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”.
