CYCLING HELMETS
Previous | 1 | Next

My missus has bought me a road bike for Xmas and my mate has been taking the mick out of my gear :(

Why is he laughing at the helmet I use on my mtb?

'cause he's exceedingly dull, I would assume. tell him to go and masturbate or something.

Rule number 35


:lol:

I suspect I will be riding alone a great deal.

My helmet has a removable visor - dual purpose !

Much blasphemy ensued, and some menace, which I stopped by dismounting and opening the carriage door, and intimating an intention of mending the road with his immediate remains, if he did not hold his tongue. He held it.

If you don't look back after parking your car, you didn't buy the right one

When I cycle out to the trails (over the suspension bridge, I <3 Bristol) every single MTBer says hello. The roadies just look offended if you try to be friendly.

I've noticed this too. If you've got a puncture or another problem and are in the middle of dealing with it, proper bikers always stop and ask if you need a hand.

Roadies are in too much of a rush to stop or be nice. They career past shouting "THIS ISSS STRRAAAAAA-VAAAAAAAAA".

Yep visors are a no no on the road :lol:

My S3 has a removable visor for the odd occasion I venture off road.

Also, I always get a cheery nod from other roadies around here, you get the odd ignorant one who is obviously trying to be KOM on a Strava stage or something but generally everyone says hello or nods.

My cycling mate (and boss) had just come off his bike when he hit a patch of sand on the corner just after a side-road crossing on one of the local cycle tracks. The lovely friendly roadies who went by a minute later all took time out of their day to shout at us for stopping in a stupid place.

Cunts.

They didn't even have the bottle to stand up for themselves when we had a word with them back at the carpark, fucking pricks.

Whenever i am out on my mountain bike and come across any roadie on their own they always nod hello, however when they are in a group of three or more their competitiveness with each other probably gets the better of them and they barely acknowledge me as anything other than an obstacle in their way.
