Cyclists lie a lot. Like what they tell their spouses that those bike parts cost (hint, multiply by two). And when they say the ride starts “promptly” at 9:00 (try 9:15 sweaty).
My favorite lie is that the group ride will be at a “casual pace.” Ha! You know what that means – rest up, because they’re going to rip you legs off.
Anyway, I like that lie so much that I wrote a column for Dirt Rag about it. Read it here: Casual Pace and Other Lies
