Odds and Ends: Typical Pre-Ride Conversation

I know a lot of runners read this blog and I just want to clarify something - this is exactly what cycling is like. I have personally overheard or said every part of this conversation.

Hope everyone is having a good holiday season. Thanks for reading.


  1. Freaking hilarious and unbelievably spot on. Some of my favorites:

    "it's nature's way of saying you don't belong"

    "will there be hills?"
    "the earth is not flat, there will be some hills"

    "we may stop. or not. it depends"

  2. "Depends on what?"
    "If I'm tired."
