One part you don't understand is that the dumb neon (as you put it), serves a purpose.
Cycling is 1000 times more dangerous than running, so standing out to drivers is important, that's why you don't see cyclists wearing full black uniforms or dull colors. You get hit by a car going driving 30mph and you will be dead or seriously injured.
Believe me, when you are biking 20 mph and cars are passing you at 55 mph you want to stand out.
Unlike running, in cycling you are a vehicle on the road and must be visible to other vehicles, even during the day.
Cyclist also like to wear the pro kits because they are fans of the sport, similar to people wearing NBA jerseys when they run. It's part of the culture of the sport, just like runners wearing short shorts.
