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 :D ;)

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.

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.:confused:

They were probably hanging out your shorts.
