Did I catch that right...?

.. or things they'll probably never say.  Keep it light, some people may be more sensitive than you.

Maladict(a):  'I think these GPS things are overrated'.

John Spooner: 'So I set off with the lead group and after a while, looked round to see that I'd ridden them off my wheel.  Thank goodness for that, I thought, I won't be pestered for tales of the old days'.

PaulD: 'I don't think I'll bother with 200s any more, I just love these longer rides'  [A bit unfair because he seemed to be having fun on the BCM]

Teethgrinder:  'What?  200km?  On a pushbike?'

Mal Volio:   'No I really wouldn't do that - that ride is just not suitable for fixed!'

NikW:   'Look, can we speed things up a bit - Tuggo's catching up!'
The lights were red, his brain was small - he hardly felt a thing at all.
