Bicycle Racers

Posted on Sat, Oct 13, 2012 at 8:23 AM

I'll start this Jeers with a big Cheers to all of the people that went to
the trouble to organize the first annual Coeur d'Fondo. Nice to have
another century ride in the area and have you pick up where Tour d'Loc left
off. However, I'd like to say that as a long time cyclist who does a few
thousand miles a year I have to take issue with you clowns who leave your
trash along the route. I've witnessed this in many rides. Everyone is on a
bike that is somewhere in the multi-thousand dollar range, everyone carries
GU gels or energy bars and whatnot. Most everyone has a jersey with pockets
in the back to keep said items. There is a small quantity of you cretins
that consume your snacks then leave your garbage on the road and it just
chaps my arse. You managed to get 50 miles out with it in your jersey - why
can't you consume it and take the wrapper with you to a garbage can? On the
Spokefest ride there was this big doofus jock clown decked out in red that
I saw leave his blown tube on the side of the road. At the end of the race
I overheard him telling others he had 5 flats. Can we presume he left 5
tubes out in the country for the rest of us to enjoy? What a slob. I hope
Big Red reads this. You're A Slob! Ain't ou got no mamma?! To the rest of
the conscientious and courteous energy saving cyclists - Lavoro Eccellente!
