    gemathy:Although, I've always thought we should have a thread for things people yell at you while riding your bike...if only to keep track of how many dudes yell 'can I get a ride?' at the girls.


    Let's keep track.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    A couple of years ago, after the Celtics won the NBA Championships, I remember riding up Cambridge Street by Government Center on the day of the Celtics victory parade. A small crowd was already gathered behind the barriers and were already lit. I had just raced through a yellow and was still sprinting up the center line when someone yelled out, "GO, LANCE!"

    So, I raised my hands up and did the no-hands victory wave and the crowd just started cheering.

    My morning commutes can totally use more cheering rather than people calling me a fuckhead."

    At some point during the blizzard two weeks ago, a few folks asked if I was riding on snow tires and I just said, "well, they've sure got snow on them."

    ^^notcool? even tho we all do it.

    A few nights ago after a major event at Agannis Arena there was tons of traffic and really annoying riding conditions. But there were a few guys in a car yelling obscene things at me that I couldnt really understand. I ended up just taking out my U lock and holding it on my left side for them to see. Nothing happened. They didnt stop.... but they also didnt get closer to me. Soon after they ended up driving away so I was pleased.EPIC!

    ah! yes!!!! the thread I've been waiting for because I LOVE telling this story.

    I rode up on the sidewalk to get on the SWC at the Mass Ave station and rode between the bus stop + the benches in front of the station. There were 3 old, pretty drunk or cracked out dudes on the bench and they were so psyched to see me! smiling + waving! And one of them says, "oh shit! its Carnie Wilson! on a bike!!"

    made my day! still gives me the lols.

    I yelled at a couple kids who walked in front of me on Tremont and one yelled "sorry merckx!" Which I found to be interesting.

    People yell gay slurs at rgbike all the time but I don't think she can hear them so it doesn't matter.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    I don't wear headphones but that's 'cause I like interacting with the natives.

    Four years ago, while on a 600k from Hanscom to Vermont, I was riding through Shirley, MA with some friends at about 2 in the morning, and had hit Shirley Center just as the bars unleashed all of their drunks. Cars were buzzing and jackasses were yelling and it was altogether not a cool time. A couple of guys drove up next to me and asked, "hey! where the fuck you guys going? It's the middle of the night!"

    "Vermont."

    "What? What the fuck are you guys? Racers?"

    "No, We're randonneurs."

    "Rando -what's that?"

    "It's french for 'badass'."

    "Hahah, you want to race?"

    "Ok, sure, why don't you guys get a nap and sober up and I'll see you in Brattleboro."

    "See ya there, guy."

    Never did see them, though ... but that was about the last of the shenanigans for that night.

    she was also sitting on a bench outside the liquor store we went to
    i almost fell over when i turned around to see how young the girl was.

    i also maybe have gone too far with this one:
    thursday night ride going through neu/longwood

    older guy in a wheelchair: "you'll never catch lance!"
    me: "you'll never walk again"

    in hindsight that was just uncalled for.

    I was riding home three years ago on the Valentine's Day ice storm with a bouquet of roses wedged in between my seat stays and rear fender. I stopped at a red light in front of a bus stop and two teenage girls looked at me, looked at the flowers and at the snow and said, "Mister, you're the most romantic crazy man I ever saw."

    kilgore_trout:i also maybe have gone too far with this one:


    I had a similar event about an hour ago. I had some pretty squeaky disc brakes when I rolled up to a light. Some great big girl was like, "Nice Bike! Squeeeeeek! SQUEEEEEEEK! WHAT'S WRONG WITCHYOUR BIKE!?" And all of her posse was laughing and jeering. I couldn't help but say, "at least it keeps me skinny."

    They.Were.Pissed.

    I fully accept any karmic repercussions from this.Except our own thoughts, there is nothing absolutely in our power.

    oh, when girls step out into the street not looking calling them a fucker or swearing at them doesn't get their attention, calling them fat has them thinking about that shit later on.
    also when parents push their strollers or kids out into an intersection without looking cursing at them doesn't work so i yell 'you're a horrible mother/father/parent' and that sure as hell has them thinking

    joeyfresh: what does karma have to do with it?
    ella: you're not fat, so don't worry about it. unless you step in front of a bike without looking, then you might be fat or a bad parent
