Peleton conversations

Postby shiv » Fri May 14, 2010 11:07 pm

Just a random thought before, With all the time spent stuck in a peleton at well below flat out pace, how much do the riders chat to each other and what about?

:lol:

and there is always at least one self-appointed peleton-policeman yelling orders. usually telling people to get a move on...when they could just lead by example and have a crack themselves :roll:

AM I the only one who has trouble hearing anything that anyone says in the peleton (or in my case on bunch rides..."peleton" is a bit of an overstatement...or even just riding with a mate)??

My current helmet seems to channel the wind across my ears and I really struggle to hear unless the other people really speak up...drives me crazy...I'm not deaf in other situations :x

lol this happened in my handicap on the weekend - there was a guy constantly shouting instructions to keep the B grade paceline going - most instructions were along the lines of ease up, don't go fast out of the corners etc - anyway people started ignoring him so the pace picked up and he was the first to get dropped, it was fairly amusing - then he was still yelling instructions at us as he rolled around solo each time we went past him!!
