New Term

My wife has invented a new word to describe the way I examine the bikes other riders are on when we pass them in a car. She says I 'Bogle', or 'Bike Ogle'.

She thinks she's so clever - bless! :wink:

  • She's right though :wink:

    EDIT: unless you're looking at the rider's anatomy...in which case, let her know that she's right...

    It's also the name for a ghost up north!

    When we had a horse that was afraid of daffodils the owner told us it was because of the "daffy bogle"

    I definitely 'bogle'. Some more:

    Twod - describes a nod to acknowledge oncoming cyclists on the other side of the road, only to realise that you are driving your car rather than riding your bike. e.g. "Oops, I just gave that cyclist a twod."

    Broadie - the feeling of lust and anxiety you have for a new bike. e.g. "The new CAAD 10 is making me feel broadie - I want one!"


    I had one of them red bikes but I don't any more. Sad face.

    Pedallestrian is the term I stole from here about a year or so back. :lol: About the best one I ever saw.

    Not to be confused with a 'pedalphile' - someone who has Look, Shimano and Speedplay pedal systems on their various bikes.

    It's probably been coined previously, but my basic training technique is GOTAR - Get Out There And Ride.

    I sometimes use MOAAC (which I pronounce "moe-ack")... must overtake at all costs. Applies to all road users.
