Who walks around when riding a road bike?

It's a road bike, not the bike you take to the pub, or to the grocery store, or to the Yukon with panniers attached. This issue is a category error.

My rides work like this: ten ambulatory steps out to the shed where the bike is stored > two hours+ riding during which only the wheels touch the ground > ten ambulatory steps from the shed back to the house. That's a total of twenty steps. Witnessed by no one.

If you consistently find yourself participating in impromptu tap dancing demonstrations during rides on your road bike, well, I'd venture to suggest that you're doing it wrong.
