the best one I have had so far was actually non verbal
I decided to try to make a ride around my neighborhood one day with my wife leading on her bike, we were coming to a turn and 5 cop cars come zipping to the stop sign and turn on the road we are turning off of, each of them giving me a big thumbs up except the last one, he must have been real intent on what ever they were racing to because he gave me a look like,, I'll be back for you , but that's not the best part
as we make the turn there is a lady cutting her grass on a riding lawn mower, she turns and see's me and she stops, shuts off the mower and just sits there and stares at me as I make the loop around her front yard on the road,the road was like a S curve. she was like a deer caught in the headlights then as we get out of sight I here the voice of a young kid screaming MOM DID YOU SEE THAT, then the mower started back up

I got the "Are you a Clown?" from a little kid today.

When I practiced free mounting on grass a little later I definitely felt like one, all flailing about...

So as I'm getting back to the campground from a cross country ride and as I pass a group of campers one of them yells out "Hey, you're missing a wheel!".
My standard answer to this is "No I'm not. It's evolution... some of us will get it and some won't."

So the next day as I head out for another ride the same group is sitting in the exact same setting as I ride up the mountain. So this time I speak first..."Hey, you guys are STILL sitting there? You know this is a bike park right? They all burst out laughing.

About 30 minutes later they picked me up on their shuttle up the mountain and we had a good laugh.

Welcome to the world of uni. A celebrity earned for only riding a wheel. All things considered, a cheap way to find those 15 minutes of fame we are all supposedly due at some point in our lives. Enjoy your minutes my uni brothers and sisters.

I often find that dog owners excuse their dogs behaviour saying that the dog doesn't know what it is / has never seen it etc. As if dogs never bark at regular persons, or bicyclists.

That's funny
But maybe very concisely pointing out the (sad) fact, that many adults forget to play.

Best regards,

Got the same thing yesterday when I was back out trying to learn the damned thing - at least the injury that kept me off it for the best part of 2 years wasn't an issue - I could have probably got away with it at the beginning of summer but hey ho.

"You're very clever" - this to my 8yo son riding his uni in front of me

"You're very clever too" - said with a proper chuckle to me as I came into view behind. It's the sort of comment you make to a kid and I'm sure I'd not have got it if he hadn't been there, but we all laughed

I find it annoying that people call it a bike, or a ''bike with one wheel''...
