would offer to help while praying they don’t accept


#8386

Or I’d offer to help but with the caveat that I’m probably not going to be much use.


#8387

sort of depends what kind of bike they’re riding too, if it’s more expensive than mine they can go and fuck themselves


#8388

Nah it was a cheap hybrid or MTB.

I could also see their arse crack if that makes any difference?


#8389

was it a nice arse?


#8390

Not from what I could see.


#8391

cunt’s fixing his own puncture then, unlucky pal


#8392

Love that this is your barometer for helping


#8393

:smiley:

I reckon I cycle past someone riding obliviously with a puncture once a week. I never ever say anything. However if someone has stopped to try and fix something I always ask if they need help. It’s because in the first instance I might be of help, but in the second, I won’t be, isn’t it. I am awful.


#8394

why does them moving have any bearing on your ability to help them?


#8395

Reckon if you had the right tools / can fix it you’d stop right away and sort it out.


#8396

#8401

Not sure if I’ve 200km in me tbh… what sort of pace do you cycle at?

I did about 120km at 20kph over Christmas… although I was by myself and not exactly pushing myself… just sort of cycling comfortably :man_shrugging: :confused:


#8402

it’s pan flat, so shouldn’t be that bad. I have no idea what speed I’ll be cycling at because I’ve not ridden much over winter, have never done a 200km, and never ride on anything that flat. But between @TontonZolaMoukoko and the rest of us I’m sure you’ll find a comfortable pace. Plus you get the sweet, sweet drafting


#8403

Flat’s weird. No downhills means you’re constantly putting in effort. Saying that, you’ll go faster than normal. My first 200 was only 700m of up (lol):

That was a very hot day. More recently hillier winter 200s of mine have averaged 23-24km/h. I am not a very good cyclist either so :neutral_face:

Really: eat enough and you’ll be fine though.


#8404

This is still making me laugh
