Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

1. Brown shoes with black trousers, and a nondescript silver car, black bike, black pants, white shirt, with no hints of color, indicate an individual with no sense of taste or style, such as a certified public accountant or a banjo player.
2. Car is crookedly parked, indicating a careless and thoughtless person, which further evinces banjo pathology.
3. Clickbait ad on the filehosting site suggests beautiful large-breasted women from around the world would like to meet me; this is incorrect.
4. The fact that the subject and suspected banjo deviant is strapping a folding bike to the trunk lid, suggests the trunk is full of contraband.
5. If you're not going to button your sleeves, roll them up. Style-deficient banjo smuggler clearly never operates machinery, and is therefore not worthy of further consideration.

It's easier to enumerate what is NOT wrong with the photo.

Jesus...


1) hat. You're not in the Sahara, buddy.
2) wrinkly ass shirt, looks like he needs to button up cuffs.
3) square toed shoes are disgusting
4) brown shoes with saggy black pants...
5) race number on the bike in the parking lot and he's not even in kit... trying hard to let people know, eh?
6) bike upside down? Bike should never be upside down. Ever. It's rule #49 in The Rules.
7) trunk racks are bush league, get a roof rack. Or ride to the race.
8) wait a minute... empty roof rack bars?? How much is this guy hauling?
9) 3 parking stickers in rearview mirror? Take them off when the new year's sticker is in.
10) Very poor parking job, not straight and not centered.
11) saddle to bar drop like that on a folder? Next he'll need some 16" carbon discs for it to get even more aero.
12) aftermarket wheels on that car? Really? Pimpin' out your Chevy Lumina real well. Next try washing it.

I could go on...




OP.... I'm actually just mad at you for even knowing this person and continuing to associate with them. You guys carpooling to the Bromptonaut races or something?

I'd ride with him.

Seriously, why disparage someone like this?

Did he post in Hot or Not?
No.

Grow up.

Easy. It appears the number plate has been concealed in some way to avoid speed or toll cameras. I'm pretty sure this behaviour is illegal. What do I win? I hope it's a spiffy new hat.

I have a Bike Friday NWT. They are not the neatest of folds. Nothing like a Brompton.

I had an Olde Bianchi folder for 2 or 3 years. Folded it exactly once.
