It’s that time again 4:00am and up getting ready for my ride into work. It feels a bit like Groundhog Day!! When after sudocrem slapped on the face of my new friend Mr Pimple it was time to hit the road.
I had a fantastic ride into work with the weather being kind and with it being the start of a new week of cycling. Well as I was a cycling along I remembered a funny old joke about a cyclist and a sports car so I think it’s a good time to share it with you as it makes me chuckle.
A tired cyclist stuck his thumb out for a lift: After 3 hours, hadn’t got anyone to stop. Finally, a guy in a sports car pulled over and offered him a ride. But the bike wouldn’t fit in the car. The driver got some rope out of the trunk and tied it to his bumper. He tied the other end to the bike and told the rider: “If I go too fast, ring your bell and I’ll slow down.”
Everything went well until another sports car blew past them. The driver forgot all about the cyclist and put his foot down. A short distance down the road, they hammered through a speed trap. The cop with the radar gun and radioed ahead that he had 2 sports cars heading his way at over 150 mph. He then relayed, “and you’re not going to believe this, but there’s a cyclist behind them ringing his bell to pass!”.
After a longish day in the office I had a decent ride home although the weather be me slightly changeable and a little rain fell but nothing of any note. I am starting to get use to my new friend Mr Pimple coming along on the ride but sometimes he is. Right pain in the arse!
