I was at a stoplight at Friday, and some fat old roadie going the other way waved at me. I waved back. Then he yelled "DO A TRICK!!!" and twisted his wrist like he was antagonizing a motorcycle or something...

Mine is all about the handlebar... having ONLY the LEFT side resting on the starbucks window...

Yeah, I did it... I bet I could do it again too. It's like that.

2 days ago when I was on an MUP, I went around a blind left and rapidly caught a BMX kid. I think he wanted to show me some skillz. He starts to sprint away from me when he deftly slides his foot off his pedal to 'jump' over his handlebars, discard his bicycle, and roll around on the ground writhing. I was impressed.

I like to pass roadies really fast on a loop course, then immediately pull off and hide behind a tree and wait for them to pass, when I then pop out and pass them again in a couple minutes.

its a total mind**** and ego bash for them.

I do this this REAL cool trick. I ride REAL fast on a mix of dirt, and paved roads with lots of obstacles that require me to jump on, and off my bike for an hour or more WITH 60-100 people who enjoy doing the same trick at the same time.

The tricky part is being one of the first to finish.

would riding the wrong way on a one way street go under "riding on the wrong side of the road"?

I really like the Dirty Sanchez, the Rusty Trombone, the Glass Bottom Boat, the Cleveland Steamer, and the One-legged Skid.
