Pet Hates!

Recommended Posts

To be fair, cycling gear is pretty one-note. If you want a proper set up you can't really go for the muted number with no logos because they don't make them. It's go logos or go home. Does it look silly? A bit. But it's not like there's a wide range to choose from. Having the right gear is better if you take what you're doing seriously. I bet those shorts have mad taint padding.

Looks like a nob but maybe isnt

Plus a tastefully muted palette of cycling clothing makes it much harder for drivers to see you. Being regarded as a dayglo wanker is probably preferable to ending up under the wheels of a bus.

Very good point that. Your racing green shimanu onesie won't look so great when it's spread in pieces across the haudigain.

why not wear a full lycra outfit with a picture of a bike on it, so that you can look like a bike riding a bike?

 

why not?

A bike on a bike, so you can bike whilst you bike?

So many cyclists out on the road late last night (between 2230 and 0100) with no lights, high vis. clothing or helmets. 

 

Made me so angry, I ran over 3 of them just to make a point.

Pet hate: going to get a bus, and having a drunk old man shout vile homophobic abuse at you and your mate, having a mop bucket thrown at you and then having to deal with police asking you questions.

I know this is pretty run-of-the-mill pet hate but hey.

presents fall into certain categories for me.

 

a present that has a purpose and will get used regardless of what it is.

 

a present that hasn't got much use other than the sentimental attachment.

 

my dad is hard to buy for, because he is not into sentiment, I will buy him something that he will use. like a item of clothing or a product like aftershave.

 

mum - I can get any trinket or sentimental piece, either a nice ornament or a plaque with a witty saying etc. she is in her element.

 

seriously if your mum can't ask for something why bother, if she can't see past the act kindness regarding the present and the though of doing it. 

 

seems weird.

Yes, they kinda happened to be there, he must've been bothering other folk. So I'm not a snitch.

I don't mind the lycra nonsense - what fucks me off is these cunts on bikes on the back roads between Alford and Westhill with no helmets and no hi-vis.

It's the motherfuckers who cycle on the pavement that get my goat. Wellington Road is rife with them during rush hour. I've just stopped moving for them now, which is probably going to get me splattered someday, but the level of seethe when they have to get off their bike/go onto the road is awesome.

 

Get yourself a helmet, get some hi-vis, read the Highway Code and get the fuck off my pavement with your self-entitled attitude, you little shit. I'm the pedestrian: you have to worry about getting in my way, not the other way around.

 

A lot of cyclists have this weird idea that they're some kind of impoverished, persecuted sect of humanity and all. I get it, cycling in the city is really dangerous, there are a lot of mad bastards on the roads, and it's probably pretty terrifying, but that doesn't give you the right to put my safety as a pedestrian at risk.

I have no problem with cyclists on the pavement as long as they are under the driving age otherwise onto the road with you.

I'm currently in Amsterdam where cyclists are mental people baying for the blood of a fresh pedestrian at all times, and it smells of dope all the time.

 

Those big Dutch bikes just sail right over human skulls.
