We're going to yell at you.

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

We're going to yell at you.

"yanking people off their bikes"? Who said that? I missed that line.

and if you're in a group of 20 other riders, who do you think will have 20 'witnesses', the noob idiot or the the experienced racer they have all been riding with for years?

i got yelled at last night.

after setting tempo on a +/-1.5km drag the whole way up, i pulled off.

guy behind me (who's probably the most obnoxious person on a bike i've ever come across in all of my years of riding) yelled at me, claiming i 'stopped.'

dumbass was overlapping wheels, and not paying attention.

i yelled back.

we yelled at each other.

nobody else said a word.

I gave someone the finger on the last lap of a race a few weeks ago. Then I went and got a check, I don't think he did. Is that like yelling?

There were a few momos on our group ride a few weeks ago who were ruining our ride. 3 friends, apparently...when they would rotate to the front, they would slow the pace EVERY time!!!!(these guys are strong enough, but like to play games like this, also just sitting in the whole time and sprinting at the end). After about 10 miles or so of this I was getting really annoyed and started 'voicing' my frustration, not yelling but loud enough to make it known. So these guys are on the front, and again bringing the pace down to 21 or so from the 26-27 we were keeping it at...then, from behind me my buddy Matt "WHAT THE **** ARE YOU MOTHER ****ERS DOING? STOP DROPPING THE PACE OR GET THE **** OFF THE FRONT'' It was so loud it startled me. It was friggin great. Good quality yelling. They didnt stay for coffee after the ride. Havent seen them since!

This would fall loosely in the "Best revenge is a life well lived" category. Although you could be on to something here, the silent yell.

Sounds like it was about the right size, comparable to a typical middle finger.

If you do it perfectly they think that you really are pulling.

There were one or two guys who were really trying to organize a chase, trying to get a rotation going, etc. It really took a while for guys to catch on and often they were content to let me sit on front for a lot longer than they should have. Best I could do at that point was disrupt the rotation.

Unfortunately not, people got too motivated at the end and kept eating away at the gap with each attack. But it's ok, he got 3rd today at university and got his upgrade points.
