Laugh till You Cry!

or Cry till You Laugh!

So we all know the only real reason I spend hours of my precious time taking photos, editing photos . . . and trying to come up with ridiculously stupid comments is to jest and poke fun at one and all.

Somehow I think I may have reached my point of comeuppance.

1 a
HA!  5 flats within 24 hours.
Many would be quick to blame me for poor maintenance.
However the careful astute observer will note
 another common denominator in this, as well as last weeks
puncture escapde:
That's right . . . 
You can ride, but you can't hide.

What I have Learned

Never make fun of people with under inflated tires (read: FLAT)
That'd be my bike . . .
While later that day . . .
Aaron dazzles us with his track stand
hmmm . . .  his bike looks kinda like "Blondie (one of my bikes)
Clearly . . . it must be about the bike
 . . . not . . .

Addendum to post of Monday, 23 January

There are in fact several important exceptions to the
 "you must get off your bike and repair it" rule.
The most important, and often used exception is 
when one is riding slow.

1) Often it is best to complain about "how hard I am working and still can not keep up."  Then, once finished, pretend to discover said under inflated tire and announce it publicly.  Not only will you be the recipient of much sympathy, but you may even find someone around to repair it for you.

2) Another important exception is when a coffee shop stop in imminent, and you know you are going to want to stay longer than the others.  In this case, it is best to let the other group riders mount their bikes . . . only to have you "discover" the under inflated tire.  This will buy you 7 - 10 additional minutes of coffee shop time.

3) The final exception the the "you must get off your bike and fix it" rule
is when you are looking for the
In this case, just ride slow and at the conclusion of the ride see exception 1

I know these exceptions to be true.  I have used them many times.
This post is directed at no one!

Visual Aid for the Tactile Impaired

This tire, although old, is properly inflated.  It lets you go fast.
This tire is under inflated.  It does not let you go fast.
When your tire looks (kinda) like this,
 you must get off your bike and repair it, otherwise you will go slow.
Why is that man hiding?  Did he, in a feeble attempt to demonstrate his "manliness,"
 let the air out of someone's tire 
(see above photo description)
Or was it this man, who turned and rode home early?

Thanks for pullin' us home Mark (even if counting is just not your thing)

Riders Riders Everywhere

. . . but not a Dave S in sight

Shortly after this photo was taken, we saw two more riders . . .
 then another two . . . it was a summer day!
Then as I have recently learned . . . another two who I apparently snubbed.
(sorry Dee and Ann, it was you or the Prince of Darkness, the Prince won)

If you weren't able to get out, you missed a January treat

Possibility of Events

Note the look of concern on Dave S's 
face as he considers today's possibilities of events.
(red Dave S, not yellow Dave S . . . Yellow Dave S is oblivious)
From now on, Sheree shall be known as:
"Two Flats"
It has recently been learned that Two Flats
 . . . had three flats . . .
"good bike . . . stay . . ."

7 seconds

It must be noted, Dave S (one of our Dave S's) has moved . . .
across the street . . .
50 yards away from his former house . . .
this is about 5.68 seconds of ride time closer to "the Church," 
and / or Lester River.
In fact, since he lives on a dead end, it is 5.68 seconds closer to everything.
ergo: he has no excuse for being late . . . ever . . . 
(I like the word ergo)

Not paying attention to instructions, Joe chooses to ride his mountain bike in 
30 mph winds, on a road ride.  He paid the price.
ahh . . . that's better . . .
Except, you probably can't see where you are going
I suppose we need to find an eye surgeon to clean the mud from those glasses
This guy was goin' so fast he left a rooster tail
Sheree and Dave were stunned by his blinding speed.
Note Dave's perpetually crooked fender.  After much nagging, he fixed it
Apparently the damn thing has a mind of its own.
I gotta tell ya . . . riding behind a crooked fender drives me nuts.

If this is your thing

We found it, and have no idea what it is. 
 Please call to claim.

I have a tent

"I want one of those . . .
 I have a tent . . . 
I can sleep in it . . ."
not sure who said that . . . or why
and if I knew, I wouldn't tell
just sayin'

These people are not crazy

For riding on 31 December
This guy . . . is crazy . . . 
Later that same day . . . 
We suspect the person hiding behind the tree 
had something to do with this

The rider of this bike . . . get serious
No, he's really not doin' what it looks like.
His first time down Stoney Point
Fat tire boys Eric and Dave, discuss with Dave
whether he needs a bigger car or smaller bike
