The old crone who was cackling about us got one thing right, old guys on bikes are a lot more fun that cackling old crones so kids will gladly desert her for old guys like us!

You know what, I wondered why I always had crowds of kids on bikes behind me. Note to self - stop playing soothing tunes while cycling...

who needs to kidnap kids when you can hypnotize them with soothing music and have them follow you? In court, you can just say that the kids were trying to mug you and plead self defense.

I ride a recumbent, therefore I'm disabled.

Can any of you play a magic hypnotic flute and ride a bike at the same time ?

If the old lady in the hair salon was saying that most every middle age guy she saw on a bike was a pervert, she'd have much more credibility.

I knew someone who didn't give homeless panhandlers money if they happened to be male because she thought most were child molesters just trying to avoid having to put down an address because of the National Sex Offender Registry. So absurd and maybe more absurd than pedophile bicyclists.

There is no `right' amount of candy. Just what it takes to get the job done.

I've managed to avoid to having children throughout my fertile years, why would I want someone else's child while I'm riding a bike? No thank you.

Besides, most of the sketchy looking guys are collecting empty bottles and cans on their bikes. They look too busy to bother trying to ride home with a squirmy, sugar filled kid.
