"Why did you ride that long?"
"What's the point of doing that?"
These are the responses I got from 4 different people in the office today.
I came in limping from a muscle cramp. When they asked me why I look like hell, I replied with "From riding 17 miles yesterday nonstop for one hour".
I am used to the mocking from wearing spandex and riding a "kid's toy" to work; I was not prepared for such stupid replies.
I simply said to them "trying to get in shape, plus, I just love riding bikes". They still looked at me like I was nuts.
Isn't it pretty obvious when a fat guy is furiously working out, he must be trying to get in shape???
