  • Quote of the day (from non-riders)

    Today I spared the air! For the first time this year I *finally* got off my butt and rode to work (Coker). I feel good! And out of shape!

    Today's quote comes from a runner, going the other way on the American River Bike Path:
    "Open your mouth wide—you can have lots of bugs for breakfast!"

    I never heard that one before. Oddly, I met him right where I turn off onto the dirt for my shortcut out to the neighborhood.

    I only saw two other bikes on my whole 3-4 mile stretch of bike path. During the summer it's a dozen minimum, usually more. I saw about 10 runners, and 1 inline skater. So I'm not the only lazy one this time of year.

    Quote #2, from a lady who held the door of my building open for me: "Where's the rest of it?" I said I left it at home; it's too heavy.

    Add your good non-rider quotes here.

      Yeah, that's right, last night while SteveOwe and I were riding on some short walls downtown, this lady walks by and yelled "Hey, did ya'll know tomorrow is Johnfoss's birthday?"

      That was REALLY strange

      Happy Birthday John!!!!!!!!!!!!

              "Holy Crap! Are you out of your mind!" as I rode down a section of fairly steep drops on a Mtn Bike Trail.

              And of Course Happy Birthday John. Great way to start the rest of your life.

                That's very similar to this old motorcyle saying ...

                Q: "Know how to tell a happy motocycle rider ...?"
                A: "By the number of bugs in his teeth."
                (implied from smiling while riding ...)

                Happy Bday!

                I still haven't figured out this one I got a few weeks ago ...

                "Your a jam ... !"

                  Happy B-day John

                  My quote was from a teenage girl in traffic in the middle of a snow storm (Are you Fricken crazy!) I naturally said yes.

                    Asked while i tried to ride down the sledding hill a few weeks ago:
                    "mister, is that hard?"

                      fel säsong

                      How about "Det är fel säsong for det." to which I replied "Nej, det är perfekt!".
                      In English that's "Bad time of year for that" and I said "No, it's perfect!"

                      I think he was talking about the continual snowfall we've had the last few months. Personally, I think all the snow lets me improve my MUni skills.

                        The best comment I got was from a road biker while on a Century ride... "Man, you got balls!" I'm still not sure why he said it.
