Was it a variation on "double wank and shit chips"

Not sure that's an improvement...

My favourite was when I was riding on the bakfiets and someone from a group of teenage girls shouted "dat bike is bare sick". I had to look it up. I'm still not sure, but I think it means it is very cool.

It's OK, it is cool.

Due to the Doppler effect I usually get kids shouting "sick bike, mate" which can almost sound like an insult with the wind whistling in my ears.

On my commute the other day, a car coming the other way had the window down and a very sultry female voice said, at a raised volume "Heeeelllllooooooooo" :)

Are you certain her companion hadn't asked her friend if she fancied 'giving you one' and she shouted "Hellllllll Noooooooo!"

Had a strange one on the way home today.  Couldn't hear clearly but the spittle flecked passenger seemed to saying ' you need to take extra provision in town'.

I guess I was looking a little jaded and she was suggesting an extra banana.

Passed two fashionably coiffed and attired Bristolian young ladies on my (odd-looking, even for a recumbent) bike:

One of them, in a delighted shriek with huge emphasis on the second syllable: Foool - iiiiish!

Nicest thing any one has ever shouted at me, made me grin for the rest of the ride. Might have it put in reflective lettering across the seat back . . .

I've never actually been able to hear anything that's been shouted at me let alone have time to reply. It's a pretty rare occurrence.  There's a m'cycle pillion passenger (female) who's given me a wave twice recently 8) from the back of a Harley.
Sic transit and all that..

A few weeks back a group of yoof took interest as I flashed past them.  (I had a strong tail wind).
One of them stepped forward to the curb and said "whaarrrggg"  Well, Whaarrgg is what most people seem to shout from cars, so I ignored it and pressed on.
It was only further down the road that my brain finished the translation.
"Hello, Matt's Dad"


Oh well.
Felt bad about that, as several years ago when they were all in the 6th form together I'd been voted "Most Coolest Dad"
(Much to Matt's dismay)

On Friday I got "Get off the fucking road and on to the fucking cycle path or when I see you again I'll fucking swerve into you!" from a Neanderthal in a 4X4.  ::-)

Had a brilliant two commutes this weekend, lots of lovely drivers!  Oh, and one clown, middle aged man in a suit with briefcase who thought it was a good idea to play chicken with me in the outer third of the bus lane.  I suppose it passed the time waiting for his bus?

I got collared by a small gang of 10-year old lads in Llanwrtyd Wells on Saturday.

They asked me how far i was going, whether I was going over the Epynt ranges and how I'd feel next day

Parting shot: "Fair play to you mister, fair play"

It really gave me a lift.

A while back I passed next to a group of youths on my Brommie.
The one yelled out:  "Ha Ha, that's a girls bike."

I yelled back at him: "well fucking get one then...  in pink!"

His mates fell about laughing. I even had the one say: "nice one, mate."

Had an odd one last night cycling back from the pub,

"Oy! Are you feeling alright?"

He sped off before I had the chance to reply, "I'm fine, actually. Thanks awfully for asking."

This was shouted from the passenger side of a white van. I don't believe he was actually asking after the state of my health, more a sort of, "Are you mad?"

But I've no idea why. I was dressed in light coloured clothing with my nice summer hat (as seen on Google Streetview) and my lights were burning brightly. It was a beautiful evening, no wind, the stars were shining. In short, no reason not to be riding a bike. So why was I mad?

Anyway balance was restored half a minute later. They must have taken a wrong turning, because they passed me again. This time though, the message was,

"Waaaarrrrooooaarrgghhh!" Or something like that.

Now that I understand.

I'm still perplexed by this one:

Riding down a stretch of cyclepath adjacent to a main road, a monobrow in a builders van yells  "Why don't you ride on the road you queer cunt!"

Pretty much the only bit of abuse Ive noticed in years
