I am going to use this the next time I hear this!! I've heard "can't you go faster?" from little kids... of course they just want to see a show of me going lightening speed or landing splat on the road.

ok, here's a new one... last night while riding through downtown, a guy and girl cross the street next to me, and the guy says "woohoo, wow dude, you should hang your schlong out in front!". And the girl says "yeah, hang your johnson out!".

Strange.

Needless to say I did neither.

But I did keep on ridin'.

I was riding my Coker on a coastal road a couple of weeks ago and I passed a car that was by the side of the road. The man in the car followed me down a hill riding alongside as I did my best to spin the wheel with 127mm cranks. The man called out to me "40km an hour", which is a quote that made me feel quite proud- although it would probably be way faster than I was really going and he may have been a bit generous in his measurement.

I was riding down the footpath the other day and approaching a guy walking towards me. I nodded because he was looking at me, then he kinda jumped and pretended he was going to knock me off the uni and gave me a weird smile. I just rode off thinking "what a nutbag".

I was riding my BC in the city the other day, I was going along a path about jogging speed and passed 2 guys. One guy said "Can't you afford the other wheel?", then the next guy said, "hey, he can't even afford the forks!"

every morning on the way to work on my Coker a 'chav' shouts "You have no willie". I just laugh, what else can I say.

Today I encountered a runner coming the other way who was accompanied by two energetic dogs. As I passed he said "Thanks for not falling off".

What the hell did he mean by that???

I guess the 2 dogs would have killed you or at least hurt you very badly, and so he would have been suid this man to bankruptcy. But because you did'nt UPD'ed the dogs remained calm. And so he thanked you.

Or maybe he was a doctor, and expecting you would hurt yourself badly while he was already in a hurry (he was running, wasn't?).

Why did'nt you ask him? Now we all have no clue.

I had an entire bus full of kids screaming "LOOK IT'S A UNICYCLE! OH MY GOSH IT'S A UNICYCLE!" I wasn't even riding it, I was walking it because I was too tired to get on and ride uphill (I had just ridden on an uphill skinny) some of the kids were even hanging out the window to look at me!
