I'm a liar!
« on: July 20, 2008, 10:03:41 pm »
I was spied drinking my milk at Severn View Services late on Friday night while on my failed 1000k ride.
I was quizzed about drinking milk, if it's a good energy drink.
I said, "Not really, I just like drinking milk."
He went on to ask me where I was going, so I told him that I was off to Strensham services (On the M5 north of Tewksbury) and going via Abergavenny.
He started asking me where my back up crew were and all the others and telling me that I'd be better off with water or an energy drink and was very forthcoming with his "advice." (Funny that people who don't cycle seem to know so much about how to cycle)
What would I do if I got tired?
I told him I'd keep going.
What if I couldn't keep going?
I told him I'd stop.
He started getting upset and that I'll not get very far telling lies. (He had an Irish accent) and went off in a strop.

It cheered me up for a few miles.
Have you ever had any funny conversations with non Audax types?

Not sure if it's connected but an AUK jersey has often stopped most people coming up to me like that. Perhaps we are the cycling equivalent of bus enthusiasts.
