Saying hello to male cyclists - oops!

Went out for a run this morning because of the wind and didn't have time for a ride, but I forgot I wasn't on a bike and said hello to cyclist, forgetting I was pretending to be a runner. He was quite good looking so now I'm worried he will think I'm an absolute loon / stalker type saying hello to random men on bikes! I don't know why I am worried, it seemed to cheer him up and my husband thought it was funny too.

  • Was your husband running too or was he hiding in the bushes watching you trying to pull random mamils....?

    same time next week?
  • I always say hello to cyclists...even when I am out for a walk on on my horse! I am sure they think it a bit strange but hopefully just friendly!

    This is ridiculous. Strangers say hello to eachother all the time.

  • Its a sad state of affairs that a woman cant say hello to a man without worrying about being perceived as a stalker or a nutter. Its no big deal and nothing to worry about.

    Hello

    Pity about some 'crusts'. Frequently whilst out in the Cotswolds i would say hello to another cyclist and get screwy looks or completely ignored. Then I moved back to Scotland.

    BTW - don't stalk NapD, he's a dodgy copper.

  • No other cyclists saying hello to me today. :-( What a shame because it was a lovely day (and I nearly got chatted up by a silver fox with a Triumph motorbike at the tearoom...).

    Hello

    By 'silver fox', do you mean a potential sugar daddy?
