It was a cold 29 F morning today when I was riding the rail trail, so I
had it mostly to myself. About 2 miles in I caught up with family of 5
walking the trail. They were all noisily talking, but as I stealthily
approached and swooped past they became quiet. A satisfying silence.




Those are the best.
I normally ride with my miniature music machine in my hand and
sometimes I'll surreptitiously switch off to listen to comments (or lack
of) as I pass.

I know it's been used numerous times but when I used this one today the
delivery was perfect and the response to it was worth a million.

I was standing to the side of the trail while a group of mountain
bikers (about 8) approached. The rider leader popped off with a "You
lost your other wheel" and I replied with a rather tired "Man, I just
got rid of the training wheel guys."

-\"BURN!\"
\"OWNED!\"
\"DUDE!\"
\"WOW!\"-
and
-\"MAN HE WAS SO READY FOR YOU!\"-

Were the immediate responses from his comrades. Priceless. I'll
treasure that memory. ^^

"Yeah, you go!"

"I -am- going. This way, see?"

This one isn't from today. Actually it's from quite a while ago. I was
riding in Huntington Beach with my dad and I had my dalmation on a
leash. We passed under the pier and I heard a teenager yell, "HOLY
S**T!" I could hear in is voice that he was going to say something else.

I wasn't disappointed. The next thing he said was, "I thought
dalmations were extinct!"

He sounded like a stoner. It was by far the funniest comment I've ever
heard.

NOt from today but from a few days ago and from yesterday. It had been
snowin a bit and my mom wouldn't let me coker to school the first few
days and I had gotten on the bus to go home and a large man sat down
next to me and asked if I was missing anything... like a unicycle I told
him that I was and that if I had it I'd be almost home by now but my mom
wouldn't let me ride that day and he said he had been talking to a lady
at the bus stop and said "it feels like we're missing something" and she
had replied "yeah that crazy kid on the unicycle." and a few days ago he
won a bet with the same lady who said "it's too cold out today I bet you
that kid doesn't ride by this morning" and sure enough I rode by... he
won $5. Then Yesterday I was cokering home in snow and ice with my slick
TA tire and a cop drove up the road I thought I was going to get scolded
for not having a helmet but he turned on his megaphone on his car and
said "that takes talent." it took a bit for that to register and for me
to figure out what he said and a few seconds later he drove up next to
me and turned on his megaphone repeating the comment over his megaphone
and giving me a thumbs up before continuing on his way.

Nice cop


Just starting my ride at the botanical garden, when I see a mt biker
ahead of me. I said to myself, ''If I catch him; it will be on the 1st
hill''. (I'm thinking he would poop out and start walking it.) He made
it, but not fast. I caught him on the 3rd hill. I said," You can't let a
unicycle beat you''.
he said,''that's insulting''
I said, '' you got me on the down hill''
he said,''yeah but you will catch me''
I never saw him again after the 4th hill as he took off ahead of me. He
slipped off the trail somewhere because you come back the same way and I
went all the way to the end.

I also ride a recumbent bicycle, a lounge chair with two wheels. We get
the same kind of WTF reactions when we go by. My wife loves riding
behind me and seeing all the reactions I get.

My daughter likes following me even more.

I've noticed quite a bit over the last few years that a recumbent
towing a trailer or trailerbike gets more comments than a unicycle (and
invariably positive).

My Son's about to outgrow the Piccolo. The most common comment then is
"He's not pedaling!"
