Bike rants

After a nice 7 mile morning run I decided to skip the short drive to pick up a Redbox and instead get in a longer bike ride with a stop at the end for the movie American Reunion, in the mood for something funny so I hope it lives up to expectations.

Lately I have been doing more biking: to and from Boot Camp/ the park / the beach/ or just for a ride meaning I and finding more frustrations with others while I am out....

  • If I say "Passing on your left" that is exactly what I mean. Please do not move to your left and in front of me.
  • Why do people think it is safe to bike with earbuds in a no helmet?
  • Please watch your children, do not let them play in the middle of bike trails especially those at the bottom of a hill or around a turn. I am not as fast as others and prefer not to hit your child or injure myself trying to avoid them.
  • If you must stop and talk please do not take up the entire trail, move to the side so others can pass.
  • Wildlife need to follow the above too: Turkey family the middle of the trail is not a good gathering spot...okay I forgive the wildlife.
  • I have a right to bike on the road and follow the same rules as cars, do not yell at me to get on the sidewalk.
  • And finally parents I understand it is your choice to wear a helmet but please put one on your child and use it correctly! This applies to young kids in bike trailers too.

Thank you Redbox for making your movies just the right size to nicely fit into a bike jersey pocket!

Now back to the August Challenge Day 12 Tell us your favourite junk food: I have a terrible sweet tooth, but could pass on salty snacks anytime. I Would live on pumpkin pie/muffins/bars (okay actually anything pumpkin will do). Luckily I have made my own healthier versions and love this pumpkin pie. What is your favorite junk food?

    1. The jersey is actually from doing Ride of a Lifetime, had to wear the one with the biggest pockets hoping the movie would fit!

    1. Even when I eat fries I prefer sweet potatoes, another food I could live on!

  3. I saw a man pulling a kid in a trailer on his bike once get stopped by a police officer and ticketed for not having his child wear a helmet. Stupid parent.

  4. I only bike on the trail near my house, but this one "I have a right to bike on the road and follow the same rules as cars, do not yell at me to get on the sidewalk." should totally apply to running too.

    1. Yes! I find that as a runner/biker when I drive I am much more aware of others out doing these things then people who don't run/bike.
