My Wife Gave Me the "Look"...(17 posts)

My Wife Gave Me the "Look"...PsyDoc
Aug 8, 2001 4:33 AM
My wife and I were out for our early morning ride this weekend. Keep in mind that my wife enjoyed watching CBS's coverage of the TDF and loved it when Lance gave Ullrich the "look." Anyway, we were about 8 miles into the ride when we made a right hand turn onto Boys Club Road. I entered the turn first and shortly thereafter my wife pulls about a bike length in front of me. Then, she turns her head back and does her best impersonation of Lance's "Look" and then sprints off. I could not stop laughing/giggling as I gave chase. When I caught her, she looked over at me and said, "I thought you would get a kick out of that!"
You should call Greg Lemond....Cima Coppi

I've been getting the "Look" for over 25 years, and it's not about the bike!

I know what you mean. I really got the look(and the chewing out) when I bought my last road bike.

You guys are scaring me... I just got engaged and just got her addicted to cycling... Have I created a monster?

Any spouse who will tolerate, much less participate in, your obsession is a treasure. Encourage it.

I do, thanks. She is still not totally hooked - We are looking for a road bike for her and she is still all about color. She would rather have a Celeste Bianchi w/105 than a Litespeed with Record... Whatever you want dear...
Get her the Bianchi!bianchi boy

If the color makes her want to ride more, do it. Litespeeds are boring ...
second that!Duane Gran

Right on. I'm counting my blessings as I'm dating someone who not only loves to ride, but she races also. Sometimes I pinch myself to see if I'm in a dream.

I used to live in Valdosta, too? I was a reporter for the VD Times in 1983-84, and my wife and I got married at the Lowndes County Courthouse. I have fond memories of Valdosta and still miss the short drives to Okeefenokee and Tallahassee...
But would she wait for you if you crashed? nmmr_spin
