Any BCC member will tell you they ride more and longer and have more fun since they joined the Club. When you’re not on a fun, social, planned, supported, no-drop ride with a great group of BCC members, you have way too much time to think. Below are some entries from an actual road biking blog thread about what poor lonely riders find themselves thinking about.
“After a long ride and the headwinds start pushing, I can often go for 20 miles repeating the mantra “Why am I doing this?” “Why am I doing this?” “Why am I doing this?” “Why am I doing this?”
“Life’s little annoyances will bounce in and out of my head.”
“OK, that’s 0.1 miles down. How much farther do I really need to go?”
“Where the heck am I, and where is that banjo music coming from?????”
“Will I really need to cut the grass when I get home, or can it wait until tomorrow?”
“Does my head look big in this helmet?”
“Can I outrun that guy on the $57,000 road bike up ahead?”
“How much further does this hill go on? What do you mean that’s my lowest gear?”
“I also worry about road kill and a car coming along at that very moment and running it over next to me, squirting road kill juice on me.”
“Dang, dropped again.”
“Usually I try to arrange to ride with other people so I can have normal conversations that keep me from coming up with these things that have others wondering what the powder is I’m adding to my drinks.”
This person and anyone else who wants to have more fun riding should go to the BCC member sign up page! Our group rides are fun, social, and great exercise. And you won’t have time to think any of the boring thoughts above!
