This Is Local London: Mystery multicoloured cyclist spotted in Wimbledon Mystery multicoloured cyclist spotted in Wimbledon

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”.

Saw this guy on Parkside a few weeks ago, he was getting a lot of supportive shouts from passing motorists. Good for him!

This guy has just returned home to the UK after many years cycling around like this in Pattaya, Thailand. He was known there as Glitterman. He brought a lot of smiles to many people, locals and tourists and the 5 or so years I knew of him he was never known to harm anyone but was always ready with a smile. Many have tried to find out why he does thus but he has always remained silent. There are reports he is Royalty related.

Yep, That's Glitterman alright. Have seen him many times in Pattaya. He was very well known there. Wonder how long he will be in the UK for before heading back out to Thailand.
