Glorious day

As today has been quite glorious in terms of weather, I've been out on Luigi
twice. Went to the usual CTC morning meet in Tittleshall - lovely cycling
the lanes - well, apart from the newly muck-spread field which meant a
secton of road to be cycled with mouth firmly closed as I did not fancy a
main course of the local insect life.

This afternoon there was an Operation Wallacea meeting at college, so Vernon
& went by car as he had to be working until the last minute before leaving -
me dragging him away from the phone. But I had Luigi in the car & after the
meeting I cycled home. *Wonderful* a glorious evening's pootle home.

Well apart from some yoof in a red Orion who, as they drove past me at a
ridiculous speed yelled "AAAGHHAR!" out of the ope driver window at me.
Morons...

Cheers, helen s

I find the appropriate response is to blow them a kiss. When done by large
middle aged matrons on bikes (me) or even somewhat less large ones (Helen)
it really horrifies them and they scarper sheepishly. I also recommend
blowing kisses for the bearded, pony-tailed and aero-bellied male cyclist,
but not for anyone under 40.

Occasionally bearded, generally pony-tailed and currently evading an
aero-belly. I am however under 40. Does this mean I'm not allowed to blow
kisses at stupid drivers?

I've found wolf whistling from large groups of teenage girls to be about as
frequent as nasty shouts. I think blowing kisses probably wouldn't
discourage that.

Occasionally, I even get wolf-whistled when cycling, too. ;)

Is that not what passes for a friendly greeting in the Norfolk dialect?

:~)

You are allowed to do anything you wish, but at your own risk. I just don't
recommend it, in case it is taken as flirting. May be a touch more
difficult for you than me to elicit the desired "Eeeew let's get out of here
response", but maybe beard and pony tail is enough.
