This past Saturday I rode a 200K brevet. Somewhere around the middle of the brevet, I stopped at a little grocery store/gas station in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere, went in and selected a beverage and a banana.
I went to the cashier to pay for it. The girl looked at my items ... looked at me, dressed in my full cycling kit ... and asked, "Will you be paying for a gasoline purchase too?"
Maybe she'd never seen a cyclist before!!
I wasn't sure how to answer that question ... "no, because I'm riding a bicycle" (obviously) ... or "yes, the beverage and banana here are my "gasoline"" .....
