Cycling Memes and Jokes

Hahahaha. I guess we can add British Class understatement to that list. Now you see I work in one of the many international organizations that have made their home in the Netherlands (Thank you). I don’t have many Dutch colleagues but I do have one or two and a couple of Dutch contractors. I have been party to a few Dutch on Dutch frank exchange of views. It is quite something for us Buitenlanders to see. A real get the popcorn out treat. In Ireland it would be grounds for a blood feud. One passed down the generations. Here it’s just business. So perhaps ‘Grumpy’ was me indulging in some pithy understatement myself. But yeah apologies for spelling faux pas.

Timely!

I like this so much I sent it to my wife as a Valentine’s card and she was so relieved that it was just a joke, that I was off the hook for any real roses. (So of course I applied the savings to my secret stash for a new bike. Twofer.)

The “AAARRGH” part in that clip is how I feel internally when I’m on rail trail in middle of the woods and a group of standing people see me coming and refuse to move over, as they watch for my reaction.

That’s awesome. They are serious about enabling bike commuting and many due (as is the case in the other Nordics). Tip: when running in Reykjavik in December when it’s well below zero C along and near the coast, run on the bike paths not the walk paths. They “de-ice” (generally volcanic rock not salt, it seems, but I don’t know for sure) the bike paths, which are actively used by bike commuters in that weather, but not the ped paths. Actual sidewalks in town are “salted” (though again, I don’t think it’s salt).

Hanging with Nate, Chad, and Jonathon every Friday

I don’t know what podcast you’re watching, but I’ve never seen Chad smile that much. :laughing:

Wait… Chad can smile?

It’s more of an Evil Grin when he gets a question… you can see him Smirk even… but Smiling?

No No No!

Coach Chad does not smile… he gave us Strength Training after all!

The Man is Evil which is why I Love him so!

I like to think of Chad’s “smile” as more of a grimace…as he continually thinks to himself, “Why are you all so WEAK?!”.
