it looks so cool but im sure it isnt possible
makes you a git.
The hands-in-pocket guys I can possibly excuse if it's hold. My hands used to get very cold when cycling but I would just invest in a pair of gloves so you don't look like a twat.
The dangly-hands-men are pricks of almost the highest order. They're all like "oh look at me i'm cycling but I don't even care, I might as well be leaning against a wall chewing gum and whistling at girls
The arms-folded ones are the worst though. It's like they've made a conscious effort to let everyone else know they're not using their hands to cycle a bike. So confrontational!
what about them?
hellz yeah, I used to do that. It was my move. Then my tenth birthday came around and I decided never to be a douche again.
You should have kept practicing.
genuinely don't believe you.
I was bent over so my hands were grabbing on to the middle as well though.
I might draw it.
I think a lot depends on your bike and also how fat you are
It's ridiculous. He has a girlfriend too, the cunt.
I would just dare myself to let go and it was the best feeling ever. It made me feel invincible.
it's centripetal force
The force took over in the end, but I had to have the guts to initiate it.
i recently saw someone cycling no hands BACKWARD. arsehole
winking at the ladies. the cunt
bet he was wearing a hat at an angle and making a snub-step mix on his phone too.
their whole ethos is to have no hands AT ALL TIMES. It all goes downhill with those people, most of the time literally as unicycles have no gears and are unsuitable for steep inclines.
Lycra on the other hand, grrrrrr
unicyclists can die, please. It's not the act of cycling a unicycle itself (even though you do look like a twat doing it), it's more the fact that the people who ride them are generally pretty awful smug people, probably white boys with dreadlocks.
i bet you hate me soooo much.
if you're going at any speed your hair will surely get messed up straight away. impractical.
which is why i do it as i am nearing my destination. also because i am a jerk.
sometimes i eat apples/other fruit whilst cycling too. i'm a terrible person.
that wasn't supposed to go there!
want to change the song on my ipod / text someone. is this acceptable?
but only if you are navigating your ipod blindly. you and I would be the last of the real pros who can turn on shuffle without looking.
He uses his hands to point at Chinese people
I also hate people who can keep rhythm without a metronome.
he negotiated a corner, a hill and a cycle path speed bump thing.
as much of a prick as he looked, couldn't help admiring it a little bit.
waiting for him to crash
would be an amazing come-uppance, spug git rides along with no handlebars, smiling smugly, then hits a stone and goes flying off....never happens though :(
"please fall off/crash" i always think
