Ride London

I think we are all in agreement that Londoners are by and large [email protected]ts in their own little cvntosphere but surely they've been on bikes before - virtually every thread in the sportive bit is about ride london, road cc now have a 'if you've never done a 100 before' tips thing for ride london, and the [email protected]!@ing thing is being televised - why?

Is it cos we is so far down the crapper that they need to show some propaganda of what a wonderful unified nation we are - or am I missing something. I mean if you're going to show a sportive show one of the popular ones with great scenery - you know like the etape - not a few hours of overweight cockneys beasting a 1% hill for a KoM :roll:

    Nah, its cos Boris has realised that you lot from the norf need a bit of culture and refinement, innit. And we're kind enough to provide it, so watch the telly and learn to speak proper :)

    Love the term 'cvntosphere', btw. :D And the irony of moaning about cockneys with a Sid James avatar...

    I shall be there on the Saturday with 8 family bikes and a tandem.

    If I can get the wife, cousin, nephew/niece, in-laws and kids to sort through and off out then this will make great telly.

    It's a great way to pi$$ off posh Surrey types, getting 20,000 people on bikes riding through their backyard in one day :lol: I know some who were hacked off with the Olympics upsetting their way of life, so getting this every year will cheer me up :D

    I know what you mean. So many threads:

    "RL100 - What kit to wear?"
    "RL100 - Take a dump before or after?"
    "RL100 - What if i just read the information provided instead of asking questions on a forum?"

    Oh bless 'em all. It means that they can get lycra'd up, spend loads of money on a new bike and go into work the next day and say that they did a 100 mile (or whatever it is) "race". Just like they do in the Tour of France with "Bradley" and "Froomey".

    Just wait until the next trendy thing comes up and they'll all be off doing that - I think that we should all start a national campaign to make dwarf throwing the new cycling and see what happens.

    Dwarf throwing is the new cycling?! I'm there! :D

    Seriously though, have you ever tried picking up a dwarf? They're [email protected] heavy! I had a dwarf friend (RIP Glenn) and when he was p!ssed (often) it was like trying to pick up a baby elephant. You'd just have to drag him and prop him up in a corner somewhere.

    I wasn't generalising. I was born and brought up in Surrey, just haven't lived there for 40 years. As you will know, some people in Surrey (and beyond) get very annoyed at having roads closed for cycling events. I believe that Surrey gets more than it's fair share of cycling events anyway, the Olympic road race, Tour of Britain, now RL.
    Races starting in London don't have to head for Surrey, they could go to Brighton.

    Just saying :wink:

    Sean, is 'Dwarf tossing' the same as ' Dwarf throwing' or have I just been to the wrong websites? :shock: :shock:
