    i once kept a guy in an SUV (land rover) behind me on a single track road for over 3 miles...he kept trying to over take and was beeping me....i trundled along doing 15 mph....

    you have got to get your kicks in life somehow, no matter how pathetic...

    "oh sorry mate, i didnt realise you were behind me..."

    You cant cycle in the rain!

    How many times have my friends and family said I am mad for cycling in the rain as if I am going to dissolve or something!

    lol

    Yes, it is quite good when you can get one over on the car users of the world!

    Funny, I was thinking along those lines today when I thought a bike user would never say ... "You know, isn't it great how other road users are so considerate to us cyclists ... "

    " I am getting those cool back pedal brakes fitted on my Trek Madone"

    "Those thin tires look too hard to balance on"

    "Whenever I stop uphill I walk to the top since I might not clip in on take-off and fall over"

    "The TDF is on too late and I have to get my beauty sleep so I'll just get the DVD when it appears on special in my local pawn shop"

    "I don't drink coffee"

    :rolleyes:

    I miss the Chihuahua, wherever it may be, but Taco Bell is continually wrapping their Tacos and Burriotos tighter and tighter until all that is left is going to be remaining,is air.
    Good tasting air,but air nonetheless. I am cheated again.
    Now back the thread subject.

    I am as good as I am going to get at cycling so I might as well just sit back and coast all I can.

    No, did not recognise him. I am not really a racing cycling buff you see. I know what Lance Armstrong looks like, and Mario Chipo-Lata. That's about it. I watch The Tour, but can't remember most of their names from one day to the next!

    I don't do racing myself and all that! I just cycle for pleasure and my own fitness. Is that a crime?

    Okay?? ;)

    Gordon-Bennet! You lot are SOOO pedantic. I know it's Chip-endale, or is it Chip-perfield or perhaps just plain, Chip-s'n'fish. :D
