    I'm so slow that after riding for 15 minutes into a 10 mph headwind, I'm a mile short of where I started.

    I'm so slow that mother's pushing strollers have to yell "on your left" when they pass me.

    I'm so slow, you have to drive a stake in the ground to use as reference to see if i'm moving.
    I'm not totally useless....I can be used as a BAD example.

    I'm so slow when trail riding that I get pushed out of the way by the bird-watchers.

    .....and I'm so slow on the road I once drafted a baby carriage to make it up a hill.

    What's this "slow" of which you speak?

    Sorry, that word's not in my vocabulary.


    When I turned 50, somebody at my birthday party cracked that I was now "over the hill". One of my riding buddies chimed in with, "Yeah, he's over the hill before any of the rest of us"...that was about the nicest present I got that day!
