Not had shouting in ages. 
In reverse, what (if anything) do you holler out to fellow cyclists when you are on foot or in a car?  Nice bike?

"Cyclewankers!"

(But only to cyclists who know me.)

"I've seen that on Youtube!"

Where?  Where are all those videos going?

*has a thought*

*searches Youtube for "sick bike"*

Nope, too obvious.   ???

Riding to work at about 2015 hrs. Group of about six young teens, who run across the road to try and kick the wheels out from under me.

Stop and smack one of them? And get arrested? Or likely stabbed?

Pedalled harder.

Got called a "fucking dickhead" by a high-spirited chav in the passenger seat of a white car just for being on the road*.  I called him a twat and we exchanged hand gestures.  It's best not to reason with them.

*I think he was annoyed because I was doing 30mph and keeping up with the van in front, instead of wobbling along the gutter at roadkill speed
Never tell me the odds.

The passenger of a van leant his whole head out the window, then his hand too. "High five!" he yelled as he passed me. Admittedly I was on foot at the time, waiting for the lights to change so I could cross the road.
Pleasure spreads out on the map and the knapsack is full of joy.
