Here's an idea for a thread.
Let's say you are at the bank or the supermarket. Someone starts asking you about your cycling, how many miles a week do you ride, why you ride, etc.
The reason they ask is they have looked you up and down, as you stand there with your helmet, backpack etc. Maybe they've even let you go ahead in line with two items for checkout.
The conversation starts out all friendly. After all, they started it, so you're just trying to be happy and friendly. You're actually in great spirits, as you have been having a great ride...
But then, inevitably, they start dumping all kinds of past resentments and near misses on you, and start lecturing you on how to ride safe. I always wondered why motorists don't lecture each other.
What do you say?
