A while back I knew I would be drinking a bit, so I rode my bike to a party, intending to take the train home and ride a little over a mile home from the train station. I had 7 drinks and waited an hour after the last one till the party ended. Then I got on my bike and rode it to the train station, intending to take the train home. I saw that I had just missed the train and the next one wouldn't be for over an hour. So I decided to ride all the way home, 18 miles (I had my lights on my bike, so I could ride it at night, plus I've ridden that route many times when sober and I know every little change of elevation on that route). Surprisingly I didn't lose my balance and I could ride in a straight line, even though I was definitely over the legal limit for driving. I couldn't fall asleep while riding and the chilly air kept me awake, whereas if I were driving I would fall asleep behind the wheel and crash. I felt like I was going faster than I usually do, since I got home in less than an hour, and my cadence was much faster. There was almost no one on the road and I got every green light, there was no wind and it was chilly. I've never been able to replicate that time again, even with a tailwind. It's unlikely that I'll repeat this "experiment" again. If I got pulled over, could I have gotten a DUI on a bicycle? But I'm sure a cop wouldn't think a guy riding 20 mph on a bike would be drunk because they wouldn't think it's possible. I wonder why I could ride my bike faster when drunk.
