Day 29: Who peed on my car?!

1 02 2010

Some horrible little troll peed on my car tonight. I know this isn’t related to cycling or dieting, but still I thought it was worth sharing. After work tonight, Carrick and I went to one of our favorite local restaurants that’s not far from our house. Because of the snow we’ve had in Louisville recently, my car is filthy with remnants of the salt used on the roads to melt the snow. I know I need to give my car a bath, but seriously, this is not what I had in mind. As we walked out of the restaurant, we noticed a “clean” area on the side of the passenger door and a rather large puddle on the ground below. I’m pretty sure dogs don’t have bladders large enough to hold all that liquid, so I’m convinced it was a neighborhood ne’er-do-well. The Dude thinks it was Woo

Carrick's holiday bike gear

Carrick's holiday bike gear


People are bizarre. Back around the holidays, Carrick was riding her bike to work when someone spit on her. She loves to ride her bike to work. Cycling makes her happy and she enjoys the interaction she has with people saying “hello” or waving as she rides by. One particular day, while waiting at a stop light, she said a cheerful “Good morning!” to a pedestrian on the corner. He did a disgusting snort and spit on her. Actually, he missed, but before she was able to ride away, he stepped a little closer and tried it again! Again he missed. I guess he didn’t have the holiday spirit. She said the whole event, shocking though it was, provided quite a few laughs throughout her day as she told various co-workers. 

What are some of the bizarre encounters you’ve had with people while on your bike?

[…] shoulder will be better by then and I’ll be able to ride.  Carrick sported her stylin’ reindeer headband on her bike helmet around Christmas time and got quite a few giggles and smiles from passers-by. […]
