Whilst I have an unhealthy hatred towards any one who is NOT a professional rider wearing Lycra I still cannot condone it because I genuinely believe that the person is riding riding their bike for a reason, be it because they are FAST in their mind ? They are reliving their youff, they could have been a pro but had a snapped clavicle or a nasty off on a greasy surface rendering their career over before it began,
For reference see all the 40 year old David Beckham wannabes littered across the country on a Saturday morning busting out of their track suits teaching kids football, if it hadn't been for that broken metatarsal they could have been worth £83 million !
Any way, I digress if that 1 person can only enlighten another person to perch on that seat then we get another cyclist,
I wear black when I ride, sometimes with no helmet, but I do this to piss people off on the off chance I can have a good debate in front of said gobby bastards wife his kids and friends on a trail in the middle of nowhere !
I usually win that debate and push it that little bit further by swearing in front of his kids just to see how brave he really is ?
Bike riding is really an extension of your personality "well for me it is" you can generally see this by the bikes that some folk ride, boring bastards always ride the same MTB's ! They always drive Audis or BMW's and they always know best !
But at least they are riding their bike !
It's not even difficult to do, it's just that some people like to believe they are so much better at it than every one else, BUT its still called bike riding or as my Dad used to say, there's them that ride bikes and then there's bike riders !
