when you're stopped at lights, and some fuckernode comes past you on a bike and plonks themself in front of you. so when the lights go green, you have to pull out to overtake them, and then at the next lights... repeat to fade.
my favourite interaction ever with a motorist; i have a cheap single speed (bought in the rediscovery centre in ballymun) i use for heading out to the shops occasionally.I look over, with my most "can I help you officer??" face, and he's looking straight at me. He glances off up the road, and then back over. Makes an Obama Not Bad face, nods, gives me a thumbs up, and pulls off.
It was probably Sean Lally. (He's not wrong either)my favourite interaction ever with a motorist; i have a cheap single speed (bought in the rediscovery centre in ballymun) i use for heading out to the shops occasionally.
one day i was cycling home, stopped at lights, and a car pulled up alongside, with a guy about 80 behind the wheel. he sticks his head out the window, and i think 'oh, here we go again'.
'howya there, is that a fixie?'
'uhh, no, i have it flipped around so it's just a singlespeed'
'ah jaysus, why would you get a bike like that and not use it as a fixie, it's more craic'.
lights go green, and away we went.
