Re: Why Are Roadies Such Wankers?

Every roadie I saw out today (except one, I think) was a wankmaster. None returned my nods/smiles, despite being riding down a narrowish and quiet road. Poor, poor behaviour :hmmm:

The only greeting I had returned was from an older chap on a toury/comfort sort of bike. And once from a guy on a roadie bike. But about a half dozen roadies ignored me.

What is that all about? It's just straight up rude. I take it to heart when people don't acknowledge my presence. So I turn around and hunt them down. Then I stare at them.

I hate it when people expect me to interupt my ride and comply to their standards of behaviour simply so they can feel validated as a cyclist.

Out riding this morning with 3 others - all of us on road bikes. We pass a dude on a mtb who shouts abuse at us.
Great.


maybe he was upset with you riding 3 a breast and blocking the road.... :butbut:


Foot note Just for you whilst out for my ride this evening I saw two MTBers and I ignored them and didn't wave and yelled at them "Thats for ignoring Barbsaram this morning you bastards!"

Sorry, but yes - at least ask us out for coffee first. 'Hot bike' on the other hand, is always a welcome compliment ;)


on my way to work this morning I asked all the lady roadies I passed if they'd like a coffee, but they just *stared*
