What is the funniest thing you have seen....(10 posts)

What is the funniest thing you have seen....Willz

a bike rider do, on his/her bike, while on a bike ride? I saw a guy that had strapped one of those blow-up dolls on the back of his bike as a passenger. He put some clothing on her for the sake of the kiddies that may have been along on the ride. I also saw a couple of teenage guys that had attached one of those fiberglass poles with the orange flag (the kind you see moped riders with) on their bikes but instead of an orange flag, they had attached their boxer shorts. Each day of the ride, they attached the pair they had worn the day before so that after five days of riding, they had five pairs of boxers flapping in the breeze. What did you see that you thought was really funny?

some mountain biker passes you like, you suck even though you have logged more miles that day than they will all month. Mnt bikers who sprint on the road suck. I also mnt bike so dont jump on me.

To present the other side of this argument, some people (myself included) cannot afford to spend bank on a new bike, so we have to make do with one bike for 5 years. I ride a majority of road miles but get in the occasional singletrack so I went with a mountain bike. This was when I was 14. I now ride my mountain bike almost exclusively on the road because I have just gotten around to ordering a "real" road bike. I log about an average of 100 miles a week, on road, on my mtn bike. And yes, I do pass the occassional road biker. Many road bikers that I see appear to think that since they're on a "fast" bike they don't have to push themselves, and that you don't have the right to pass tehm.

(and btw, I'm not "jumping" on you, just presenting what I've seen as a long time road using mtn biker :) )

I looked over my shoulder to see what happened to the guys in the back, they wouldn't pull trough. They were passing around a joint at 23mph! I'll never forget that site! Things some people gotta do to get through the day.
That's depressing....joekm

a group of cyclist riding a century at 23 mph *while* passing a joint between themselves.

Just great, I'm a non-smoker and *I'd* be the one gasping like a beached whale in that pace line.

sigh.....

I was sort of daydreaming a bit ... if I had not looked up when I did, I would have ran into it (yes, Florida)

On a long hot summer day, A friend and were riding home form the beach, both of us on beach cruisers (about 30 miles one way) .... about 10 miles from home we had to go up a hill (1.5 miles long and 15%) we finally get to the top of the hill (just barley making any head way at all at 0.5 MPH's)and we see this huge yellow traffic sign "REDUCE SPEED AHEAD" We both just fell out laughing in the middle of the street.

It was funny at the time........ still kind of funny.
