Perils of exercise biking—riding your pants into the machine

It's happened a couple of times with the new bike, and it happened sometimes with the old, that the hem of my right ladies PJ pants leg will catch in where the pedal strut meets bike and I will ride my pants into the machine. It usually takes three revolutions to realise it's happening and stop and in those three cycles you've ridden more of your pants into it.

To ride your pants back out you just go in reverse and then the hem is freed. I've yet to have to de-pant whilst on the machine then have to cut the pants free.

I'm sure it's only a matter of time before I have to.

No one mentions that risk when you buy an exercise bike, the possibility of riding your pants into the machine, but, well, now I've exposed it.

I'm like sleepwear Nader 2016.
