Bunch Biker or Bikee?

Postby vfrkenny » Wed Apr 06, 2011 8:39 am

Just a few observations.
After several years of riding it has become apparent that the possession of a road bicycle of any brand does not make one a legitimate road cyclist any more than owning a Harley makes one a Hells Angel (I do know this despite my powered cycle being a Honda) and that being accepted as a cyclist by the bunch is no more assured by the possession of said racing bicycle regardless of how many turns one has taken on the front and into the wind. Also that the hot cup of coffee at the end of the ride is not the reason for the ride although coffee does taste especially nice when consumed in suitable company. This noble but masochistic sporting activity does indeed appeal to my nature even if there are confusing unwritten rules where personal space applies more to exotic sporting equipment than to the riders themselves, confusion aside the love of aching muscles and exhaustion has me wishing that the next time the 7am bunch rides out for Black Rock I hope it is pissing down rain, I will be there. Never say never and never give up.

you should be finishing your 2 hour, 70km ride by 0730 to get the second espresso of the day - never drink the first....

I agree with Scotto.

7am ? Half the day is already gone !

I only know of 1 bunch in our area that go out that late - and they're mostly retired guys. 8)
Giant TCR 0

Some days I wish it was a 7am start. I'm normally home and sorting out the kids by then!

I ride so I can drink coffee, bunch rides start at 5:45 or 6 - depending on the ride.

Whose leaving for Black Rock at 7am? We leave way earlier usually at Racer by 7 - 7:30 depending
