Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Yesterday I just escaped accident...

Yesterday afternoon when riding in group, a lady just front of me, all of a sudden cut the rhythm of same motion of flow and slowed down with crazy motion just front of me... I hit the brake...I have Vittoria Open corsa Tire ... very low resistance but with no traction. I slide left and right like skaters on snow block but avoid fall...

I moved up with the other three front runners...again when climbing a hill in full sprint I found the guy just front of me is out of gas and dead slow... all of a sudden..I was in full spring ...complete head down leaned over my drop bar ... completely blocked left by another guy to find any room to escape...( if I would not look up I would run over the guy in .2 second...). I hit the break and slide but somehow managed to stay on by bike...avoid fall....

"Erotic motions" are nothing but accidents waiting to happen.

But I'm glad you were okay!

Less rear brake, and pay more attention to the road and less to the "erotic motion".

I am Indian... I understand erotic may have different meaning to you. I know doctors in India mention 'erotic heart' to a patient means irregular heat beat problem.. cardiac irregularity ....I meant irregular motion...no other meaning.

"Erratic" is the word you're after.

I think the word you're looking for, and the one doctor's might use, is erratic, not erotic. The sound kind of similar I suppose, but big difference in usage and meaning.

Well if you're now talking about a group ride with a bunch of "erratic" cyclists, instead of "erotic" cyclists, that's another story which is much less interesting.

You are right...found the dictionary word of Erratic..

"Lacking consistency, regularity, or uniformity: an erratic heartbeat."

Pay attention while riding in a group. Give yourself a means to escape and don't just look at the rider in front of you.

Keep your head up. Pay attention to what's going on around you.

Erotic was the only thing making the thread readable.

Did you happen to also look up "erotic" so you can appreciate the humor?
