Best encouraging ride quote...(20 posts)

Best encouraging ride quote...biknben
Aug 1, 2002 9:58 AM
My riding buds and I have a couple quotes we periodically spit out during our rides. They are getting a bit old though. I figured someone here could offer a couple more to liven up the time in the saddle.

Examples:
"Makes you STRONG, like OX!!!"
While in pain towards the end of a climb.

"MEOW, MEOW!!!"
When someone starts whining a bit too much. Bit like a pussyCAT.

"Pain is weekness leaving the body"
My personal fav.

"Brakes?...They just slow you down!!!"

Help me out. Give me some new ones.

"A hill takes its time to tell you what it has to tell you...let your lungs burn."

"If you chase two rabbits, both will escape."

"Ask yourself, 'Can I give more?' The answer is usually 'Yes'."

"I'll do today what you won't, so tomorrow I can do what you can't."

"Don't be afraid to fail. Be afraid not to try."

"Courage is resistance of fear, mastery of fear...not absense of fear."

"I complained that I had no shoes, until I saw a guy break a spoke on a Ksyrium."

"Doh-pay" for the chronic overachiever. Not recommended if you're riding with Lance.

"Go that way, really fast; if something
gets in your way . . . turn."

"Till the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death."

"Don't think of it as 2nd place, think of it as 1st loser."

"That which does not kill us, makes us funny"
Hey, how bad does it hurt to crash at 40 MPH??Kristin

I like going fast. Its thrilling perspective but more is needed to not let my mind wander wondering what to expect if I crash while going 40MPH twisting and turning with my chin all stuck to the handlebars you see I'm learning to counter steer too and this is fun but not so much fun if I must snack on my handlebars before a helping of asfault and sand. And then will remorse set in once I must reckon before the great and holy mirror. Lastly, how many teeth in an adult, human head?

I did have a test today. That wasn't bullshit. It's on European Socialism. I mean, really, what's the point? I'm not European, I don't plan on being European, so who gives a crap if they're socialist? They could be facist anarchists, that still wouldn't change the fact that I don't own a car. Not that I condone facism, or any ism for that matter. Isms in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, 'I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.' A good point there. Of course, he was the Walrus. I could be the Walrus, I'd still have to bum rides off of people.

What a pleasant smell you've discovered.
Stay on target.
Try to seduce you it will. (Germain when spoken in context at the LBS, looking at that Seven/'Nago/Fondriest/Serotta/Maverick/etc)
It wasn't supposed to be like this. We had an agreement.
Another fine mess you've gotten us into.

I love you. (Said to bike.) I know. (Bike's reply.)

Most of these I heard during my rowing days, but can be transfered to any sport.
When struggling up the last hill of a long, hard ride, one can say:
"You didn't suffer for the last _____ hours so you could stop with the finish line in sight, did you?"
"The elderly lady in that stroller behind you wants to know if you'd like to grab her wheel"

When approaching a steep hill, or starting a sprint one may yell to his riding partners:
"drop the hammer!"
"balls to the wall!"
or the ever so popular "f@#% this, I'm outta here, good luck guys!" then turn around and TT it back home.

When riding past some extremely attractive female roller bladers in revealing clothing, one may yell:
"Show us your hoots!"
"Grab your socks!"
or possibly the most retarded thing I've ever heard:
"Is that a beer keg in your back pocket? Because I really want to tap that ass!"

ahhhh to be 18 =)
