Fatty had an unfortunate encounter with another cyclist recently. Actually, the unfortunate part of the encounter was between his big dog Duke and one of the dogs following behind the other ride attacked Duke. Took a souvenir out of poor Duke’s ear. What do you do in that circumstance? He’s a cyclist, so we like him, right? Do you mention it to him next time you see him? Do you get the authorities involved? A lawyer? Do you have a photo in your smartphone ready to display?
Hottie is aware of the advice that you don’t take a knife to a gun fight. He’s aware of it, but he doesn’t follow it. At a recent event he and a buddy showed up with gravel bikes … but everyone else was on mountain bikes. It got him to thinking about the quiver killer bike. What would you own if you could only own one bike?
Patrick says he feels good (cue the James Brown). So good, he has begun to wonder why. Certainly, he’s been working for better results, but he’s not sure if he should credit his newfound awesomeness to a recent cortisone injection or his yoga classes. Or maybe the neuromuscular massage therapy. Or maybe that traction pillow he bought. Could it be that Mercury in retrograde isn’t all bad?
