what it's like having a cyclist gf?
>>1686262I'd like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as a cycling girlfriend, is in fact, just a female who picked up a "hobby" from one of the previous guys who fucked her, or as I've recently taken to calling them, thots. A thot is not a person who likes cycling for its own sake, but rather another way to make herself seem more desirable to men by making herself appear to enjoy things like exercise, being outdoors, a sense of friendly competition or just being alone with one's thoughts, plus the sense of pride in maintaining a fine machine tuned to one's own particular wants and requirements.Many men have been tricked into letting women intrude on, and therefore defile their most cherished personal pursuits, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the world of cycling has become ruined by "inclusiveness" virtue signaling, and rather than having an opportunity to mentor a new cyclist (who happens to have breasts and a vagina) in their discovery of a new hobby. normal male cyclists find themselves berated out of nowhere by these thots because they enjoy bicycles "too much" and that makes them "elitist" or "toxic masculinity".There really are female cyclists, and some of them have boyfriends, but they are about 1 in 1,000,000 and despite the fact that this implies that thousands of them probably exist SOMEWHERE, in fact you will never actually meet one. Cycling is the sport or practice of riding a bicycle, having a bicycle is an essential part of being a cyclist but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a pure desire to ride. "Women's cycling" is normally used in combination with an ulterior motive: the intent is to make it something vulgar and inane: "this is not a race". All the so-called "women's bicycles" are really just normal bicycles painted pink.
>>1686262Same as any other girlfriend: Great for 15 minutes per day, less great for the other 1425.
>>1686269this isn't even good bait or copypasta.
>>1686262we wouldn't know
If you're a fast or even intermediate rider it sucks unless she has an e-bike, and on a ride of more than 20 burgers you'll have to find lots of places for her to go potty.
>>1686262>>1686269>>1686315pathetic thread pathetic posters
>>1686363Are you by any chance a female „cyclist“ ?
>>1686269who hurt you my guy?
Mine acts like a rodie even tough she doesn't ride.
>>1686315>Great for 15 minutes per day, less great for the other 1425.
>>1686524I see one forehead, one pair of eyeballs, and two morons.
>>1686585They are on an f1 track and subject to f1 covid rules if he wants to race.Drivers ride a bike over the course the days before to get a lay of it. N+ bikes are the bike for mercedes benz and theyll sell you a 5000 carbon bike to throw in when you buy a Mercedes.Jeep used to do the same thing.
>>1686262I watch a bit of Japanese cycling youtube and only 1 of the women is actually serious about what she does. All of the rest get dropped instantly if they collab with her.
>>1686262I hate women so much it hurts
I've only ever ridden solo, is it a bad idea to go riding with a date?
>>1686269Holy shit get a fucking life you nerd.
>>1686529I think I'm starting to find boomer memes funny. I had what you might describe as "a fall" the other day, too.
>>1686739Yes. They’ll slow you down. My wife is in great shape from running (college track athlete, faster than Boston qualifying marathon runner after college) but can’t keep up with me on a ride. She’s literally scared to go fast, especially on gravel. I ride somewhere in the 16-20 mph range depending on surface. She does about half that.
>>1686829I need to teach my wife how to pedal while standing up from the seat. She doesnt know how to do that. Wish me luck.
>>1686829Is there something wrong with her brakes? I'm scared to go fast on my beater because it has shit brakes and shit tires. Maybe she just doesn't feel confident she can brake fast
>>1686849Her brakes are fine. I think she just doesn’t feel like she can control the bike at speed, or worries about what might happen if she crashes. To be fair, riding on gravel can be tricky, especially around corners, until you get a feel for it.
>>1686829ThisTheyre way too slow on any terrain.Have to break to 8kmh to take any turn no matter how wide the turn is.its just bothersome and you mostly end up just waiting for 80% of your ride
>>1686877Maybe try getting her drunk before a ride? I have ridden drink as fuck on gravel a bunch, it is fun but you end up with cuts and scrapes all over from falling
>>1686902I end up with cuts and scrapes without falling
>>1686877I don't mean to sound like a dick, but she might be too proud to go fast. Sometimes people in fantastic shape turn into absolute pussies when they have thoughts of damaging the body they worked so hard for.
>>1686906>>1686902I fall without cuts or scrapes
>>1686907The solution for this is to beat her and leave visible bruises
>>1686262Follow your grandpa. Does grandma go fishing? Does she have a poorly working classic car as well? FUCK NOlet your wife or gf have her own things. Maybe take her on a big charity ride and wear matching jerseys or something but taking her out at 7am sunday, allez du ballai for a hard 50? FUUUUUCK NO
>>1686913I don't fall, cut, scrape, or end
>>1686262One of the hottest things I've ever seen was a cyclist girl I used to fuck going through her dirty laundry looking for shirts. She picked a pair up and smelled it, I asked "does it pass the smell test?", and she shook her head no and put them on. By far the sweatiest person I've ever fucked and her ass was solid like a rock when I squeezed it
>>1686907=now that I think about it its kinda true actually,
>I don't like going on the road, lets just ride on the crowded path.>Those curly bars make my neck sore, lets get comfort bikes.>You want to ride for how long? Lets just go 30 minutes.
>>1686262Don't know, but if I get one, I'll get a tandem so we can ride at my pace together. I let her ride in front so I can enjoy the view and smells.
>>1688214Is the braps really worth entrusting your life with her handling skills?
>>1688282I have to die anyways, why not die with a smile on my face?And if she's a cyclist, she will be able to handle a bike. I hope.
>>1686441>who hurt you my guy?
>only real "hobby" i have is cycling>not even good at it, just do it to commute and occasionally for leisure>sometimes pass by girls/women biking and dont acknowledge them>take subway to work and see girls with bikes all the time yet never even strike up conversation with a possible shared interest>even have a few girls at my home station who bike and get their bikes with me, yet never speak to themits truly unfathomable how autistic i am>tfw recently girl started biking same partial route home as me and im right with her, hell we even stop at the same crosswalk to wait to go and i still never look at herbut she's the type of idiot riding on busy streets with no helmet and earbuds in both ears and tattoos so i wouldnt even want to talk to an idiot like that right /n/ haha
>>1688819she based, fuck helmets
>>1688819> arm cancerYou dodged a bullet there
I bet it's annoying as hell. I have my own hobby and prefer doing it alone.
>>1688819She probably has already a boyfriend dont sweat anon you are safe.
>>1688819>Wearing a helmet
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAldApA06iE>tfw no team germany olympic track cyclist gf
>>1689081Some people have stuff to protect inside their heads.Not all of them are hollow like yours.
>>1690821I‘d wouldn’t last long behind theirs rears, if you know what i mean
>>1686585You should continue wearing masks to protect your face from non-free software.
>>1690821>woman sprinter>tiny and delicate upper body>massive muscular ass and legs>will mock you while she sprints on her city bikes leaving you behind. and make a smug face.Damn I really want one now. Must feel so good to fuck them
god i wish that were me
>>1692403Is she wearing red and blue 3d glasses?
>>1692425Who doesn't? I also like having depth perception, so I can see approaching vehicles and be able to protect my offspring in time. 3D vision is useful!
>>1692403Trailer looks like it weighs one and a half times as much as the bike, empty.
>>1692514imagine the climbing gains
>>1692514Lol think about it im pretty sure you want to overbuild a kids trailer.You havent lived till you see a wine aunt pulling a bichon frise in one of those shaded ones. What a world!
>>1686351This. Prepare to go very slow.
>>1686269Gahnew slash linuggs
>>1686913I fall but don't scrape. I cut at home though. Down the highway not across.
>>1692917>You havent lived till you see a wine aunt pulling a bichon frise in one of those shaded onesunironically, I've witnessed that before
/o/ here, my gf is an aggressive cyclestacy >bought me a specialized rockhopper comp for my birthday along with a helmet, water bottle, and road tiresyes she bought me a goddamn mountain bike for road use>made me get a bike rack on my g35 which is bad for aero>disassembles her fucking gravel bike and stores it in my trunk>constantly asking me to ride with her into the woods and the ride ends up being stupidly long>constantly complaining I drive too much, too fast, and “too much car” despite it only being a 3.5 L V6>complains about my car’s noise>broke my proud Nissan clutch trying to start in 2nd, which was a $300 repair>doesn’t know how to handle a sports car, drives my car anyway so she can get to trails>constantly worrying me with stories of how she rides in the street like a carI love her but it gets to be quite a fucking bit sometimes
>>1694497>specialized rockhopper comp>with road tyres>made me get a bike rackthat doesn’t sound like a cycle stacy, it sounds like a cycle betty
>>1694497>>broke my proud Nissan clutch trying to start in 2ndsounds like a bitchboy nissan problem not a stronk second starting chad gf problem
>>1686269What a wall of cringe. Someone gave birth to this incel and this is what he's typing out online.
>>1694497lmao your gf has bigger balls and more t than you
>>1694497>constantly worrying me with stories of how she rides in the street like a carit's not that she's aggressive, it's that you're being a little bitch
>>1686829I'm going on a tour with my gf. Even tho she ride at 5km/h less than me on average, it permits to set a cool pace, not get tired too fast.
>>1695090We offset her being a bit slower by me using heavy, puncture proof wheels and me carrying most of the food/equipment in my panniers to make the ride most challenging/fun for me.
>>1695552is that a picture representing you or your gf
>>1694497>doesn’t know how to handle a sports carlmao @ you thinking a g35 is anything but a v6 altima. fuck off /o/ faggot
>>1695552I hate women so much it's unreal
>>1695568women hate (you) too
>>1695559Neither. Like I would upload private pictures to this shithole.
>>1695568Why tho? They're huge resource sinks, sure, and are mostly useless, but some of them are really cute and make my pp hard.
>>1695773so neither of you are hot? lame
>>1695777Sorry, not everyone can look like super models like you.Dick.
>>1695779then don’t upload pics of hot people when talking about you uggos, just post an ugly person on a bicycle
>>1695782>cross chaining this hard
>>1695783Who cares? His bike mechanic will change components after every ride. It's not that he has to pay for his bikes with his own money like you and me.
>>1695787it makes an ugly sound and it's not efficientwith those bare feet he needs all the watts he can get
I wouldn't call her a cyclist, but we have nice sunset cruises together.
>>1695812 >Fuck my life
>>1695812Please tell me that you guys ride to a secluded place in nature to fool around / fuck each others brains out.
>>1686262Probably a nightmare, hybridizing the douchebaggery of lyrcafags with the attention whore/manipulation ability of women.
>>1695812are you black?
>>1694497wtf she sounds based, give me her digits
>>1694497> g35> sports carpick one
>>1686829Is 16-20 fast? That where I average.
>>1688282Handle Deez nutz.
How do I get my friends and potential love interests into cycling?
>>1686269Got rejected again?
>>1696212One thing would be to do a bit of upper body training to not end up a gross looking, t-rex proportioned freak only good at climbing and not able to pick up something heavy.
>>1696200If you don't know what's fast and what isn't, then you don't average 16-20mph. You might cruise somewhere in that range, most likely towards the lower end of that given the fact that you're even asking, but a cruising speed is not an average speed.Track your rides with a GPS computer with a wheel sensor, and don't edit them because anyone can just cherry pick a short segment and go "see? that's my average speed". If you're riding more than an hour at anywhere near 20mph average speed, you have most of the KOMs in your area and you'd know you're one of the fastest people around.
>>1696419Not him, but i always get confused on average speeds because different apps calculate it differently. I use ridewithgps but have it set to sync to strava because I'm a fag who likes to look at segments, and i consistently have a 1mph faster average speed according to ridewithgps. Idk how that can even be, strava will say I'm averaging 15mph when I'm going way faster than that and closing in on top 10 for a lot of segments when I'm going hard. Shits fucked man
>>1686829>Is it a good idea to have sex with a woman? I've only ever pounded off>No. They'll slow you down.
>>1686829Running and cycling utilises different muscle sets. Having trained on set doesn't mean you will be strong when using the other.
>>1696502this but unironically
>>1696448Do you mean 1mph or .1mph? I often see my averages revised by .1mph after a ride but I have never seen a 1mph discrepancy.
>>1686829>They’ll slow you downWhat do you think the small ring is for?
>>1696549climbing double digit hills
>>1696539yeah, a whole 1mph difference. here's strava vs ridewithgps for my ride last night. Its pretty consistently like this for most rides
>>1696419Well, according to my Garmin watch and the sensors in my wheel, I average between 16-20mph on my 26 mile rode daily, so idk what to tell you. I wasn't asking the be an ass, I just don't know what is considered fast.
>>1696419Also, I don't know what KOM means.
>>1696601Keeper of the Medley. In cycling races the winner is expected to yodel a medley, and thereby becomes the keeper of the medley until ousted by the next winner. This tradition dates back to feudal Japan circa ~1200 AD where yodeling Samurai invented the sport of cycling.
if she wasnt such a nutjob, it would have been way better
>>1696652They're all nuts, every single one of them. I hate them so much
>>1696654me too, man, me too
>>1696595I checked strava vs ridewithgps for my last few weeks of riding, most of them are within 0.1mph. I have a ride where I stopped for about 25 minutes and that is different by 0.2mph. There's something weird going on with your accounts. What kind of device are you using to capture?
>>1696412Who is this fluid Druid and how do I buy her pee?
>>1695879>having gf = badthank you, virgin
>>1686262Haha can you just imagine a sweaty bicyclist gf sticking her sweaty, hot snatch in your face and making you lick it haha? Just imagine the smell, it'd be soooooo grosss haha I hope no girl does that to me haha
>>1688488Whats the point of having the front crank?
>>1700438They're probably connected internally, possibly with a carbon driveshaft for weight savings and aero.
>>1700438Well what do you think Sherlock?
Something I discovered the other day: Fast girls are sexy.
I had a girlfriend who did the transamerica route so can speak from a little experience. Cycling gf is slow as fuck, complains when you go too fast, complains when you slow down too much for her, WILL NEVER PACE WITH YOU, cannot ride a tandem, sucks all the joy you have for cycling because it needs to be "fun".There's pretty much nothing nice about it because women are impossible creatures who can't be happy when you try to serve them and make them happy, and almost never are willing to be subservient and submissive to you like women should.
>>1686262idk maybe i'll find out in a couple of years.
>>1695812dayum, thicc saddle on a white bike definitely is a pawg bike
>>1700422Yes. I too would totally hate it to be exposed to her smell sealed in her lycra outfit after sweating like a pig for hours.
>>1694497She's trying to drop hints that she wants you to go into the woods and take (rape) her. It's her fantasy and it's common. Not worth the risk unless you are close and already comfortable about CNC. Talk to her about it.
>>1695774>They're huge resource sinksYou're doing it wrong
>>1694497She sounds based and you're the mong
>>1696412Are those wheels heavy or light? From here I really can’t tell.
>>1686269based and truthpilledt. married father of 2
>>1686262I would kill myself before having a girl that cannot afford a car
>>1700980>time isn’t the most valuable resourcefound the neet basement dweller
>>1686262Not going to read the rest of the thread because I know it's probably cripplingly autistic. Cyclist gf is pretty great, though. Whatever your hobby is, dating someone who understands it anywhere close to the level that you do is very rewarding. Hopefully I'll run into someone else who likes cycling again, the last time was a couple years ago at this point.
>>1700911BRO YOU DIDNT >haha
>>1701404>he needs to put time into womenlol?
>>1686262This isnt a cyclist. She probably does 50 watts for 30 mins per week.
>>1701979>Ana Puga isn't a cyclist>smugface.gifhttps://youtu.be/e374Nn0cpE4
>>1701983Too bad fixie hipsters don't wear cycling kit. She would look pretty hot in lycra.
>>1701476The best thing about riding with a qt is hearing her heavy breathing for hours while she tries to keep on your rear wheel.
>>1696595the obvious difference is the moving time. strava thinks you moved for 10 more minutes than the other program, that's why your mean is lower
>>1688819Ewwww, tattoos. Gross.
>>1704501I think riding on a busy street with earbuds in both ears is far worse than tattoos. Some tattoos can look good/interesting, but being an idiot is always bad.
>>1686262I don't know, but I've decided that I'll rather die alone than settling for someone that doesn't at least likes bikes and could be made to love cycling. Females that think riding centuries is impossible/too hard/stupid disgust me after I got fit enough to ride them without being dead the next day. The slight tingly/burning feeling the next day feels soo good.
>>1686357You mean, rich in aroma? Got it!
>>1686615Can you hook some brother up with some kawaii cycling female youtube channel link?
>>1705417Isn't this the gf of DurianRider?
>>1705417Fuck, skinny female cyclists in lycra are my kryptonite. So good.
>>1696608This is 98% accurate, but technically the KOM isn’t yodeling. But otherwise, good concise explanation.
>>1705413hottest one itt
>>1705421Yes it is.
>>1701068Just spend 5.000$ and find out
>>1705423>when they have the braid AND the gap
>>1705435How about this "lobster girl"?
>>1694497jesus christ cagies are more cucked than I could have ever imagined lmao
>>1686269Based pasta maker triggering normalfaggots and redditors.
>>1705404Are you a bat? Do you navigate your surroundings based on sounds? Humans have these things called sight and depth-perception that give them the ability to efficiently move around obstacles without needing to be flooded by the sound of hundreds of cagers zooming past. Try getting good.
>>1706339most humans have their eyes on the frontal plane of their head and don’t see behind them, yet can hear everything in their surroundingssorry for your malformed bug eyed self>inb4 mirrors on a bikeI’d rather be a cow eyed mutant
>>1706344not him but I find it's actually unhelpful to be able to hear what's behind you in most situations. If you're on a trail, or a very sleepy country road which you can ride in the middle of, it's vital to be able to hear stuff coming up behind you, sure. But if you're picking your line to the side and riding predictable on a busyish route, what can you even do about things behind you, aside from worry about them?
>>1706348Being aware of whether someone’s tailgating you and whether you can brake without getting ran over sounds pretty important to me, idk.Or whether there’s a car just behind you and whether you can avoid whatever shit in the road in front of you, like shitty drains or a patch of broken glass or thorns you just noticed.Or hearing the oncoming car signalling there’s danger beyond the curve of the blind corner.
>>1706339And how does your vision help to hear traffic/pedestrians/cars/dogs/children that are usually audible before being visible? Also, it's a good idea to be able to listen to your sounds that your bike makes indicating a mechanical problem, etc.Also, usually the ones wearing earbuds are oblivious about their surroundings, like these stupid slow joggers running in the middle of the bike lane with earbuds in, so nooo, noone is allowed get past you!I usually bodycheck these assholes as I'm fed up with these idiots that think they own the road. Keep your head on a swivel or fucking take your stupid earbuds out!
>>1706430>I usually bodycheck these assholeswhat is that
>>1706443Giving them a little bump when they make me pass them closely, by running in the middle of a narrow bike path. It's interesting, that most white and asian people are aware of other traffic and use the right side of a path to keep the other one free for oncoming/faster traffic, but often the ones with migration background don't understand this basic concept.
>>1694497Imagine the sex
>>1706430>usually audible before being visible ?depends on how much wind noise gets into the ear, around 15 kph its not so bad but above 25 kph most things get drowned outI used to wear ear buds allot, and would keep them at a volume just below the amount of wind noise, can still hear cars and sometimes people speaking
>>1705413This saddle is way too high
>>1706878granted, I can’t see her ankle, but the leg is still bentmore importantly it makes my pp the big pp
>>1706878depends on how much ankle motion is usedI have my seat 1 cm shorter than in seam length so that my legs can support my weight
>>1706344>>1706430A mirror on a bike is unironically based and keeps you aware of what's behind at all times. Not my fault you are a faggot.Enjoy getting mogged by me while I'm listening to tunes while hearing 0% of surrounding noise.
>>1706344>yet can hear everything in their surroundingsnot quite
>>1695939Yeah dude wtf she got a solid hardtail mountain bike AND fucking slick tires because she knows the ideal balance of most influential components between road and mtb for the most enjoyable hybrid commuter she’s a fucking keeperShe got him a fucking rockhopper with slicks isn’t that by /n/‘s definition based
Valtteri its James
>>1706948>reverse search image >it’s a visual representation of hearing aid sensitivity in different operating modeswhat were you trying to accomplish here, faggot?
Pussy tight, understood my incessant browsing of thepaceline/craigslist/facebook bsts. Didn't care too much when I'd come home drenched in sweat. Once bought me a track bike just because she missed watching me sprint up hills on it as opposed to how I rode the Allez.Otherwise pretty much the same. It was cool to be in a relationship with someone who would talk about weird old campy groupsets with you. She had a pretty sweet Ciocc but a car ran over it/her a while after we broke up. She had serious spine injuries from it but she healed up mostly ok.
>>1706867The wind noise is annoying, but up to 40 km/h I can hear my surroundings pretty well.I do have to check out these earmuffs to lessen air resistance on my two dumbo ears.
>>1706917Noise is measured in dB not %, idiot.0% would be minus infinity dB, which is a retarded statement, fitting to its utterer.
>>1706985It's normalized to the sound volume straight up in front.
>>1706985what's the question?
Went for a 60km ride with a colleague of mine yesterday. Five years younger then me, pretty and cute, she got red in the face from being sun kissed and working up a sweat. Grab a cup of coffee in the morning, drove 30 kms to the neibouring town, grab another coffee and some beer, got back to our city for another drink. I think I fell in love...
>>1707603Yeah, my first 60km ride was just like that. I never could get riding out of my mind ever since.
>>1707603>go for a 60km ride>grab a cup of coffee in the morningis this an allusion to you two fucking or do you just type like a faggot? you’re on an anonymous imageboard for autists who like bikes and trains, you’re not sipping tea with all the other neighbourhood housewives, speak plainly
>>1707646>cope posting this hard.
>>1707646Are you shitting up the board on purpose?
>>1707678>shitting up the board>posting in a cyclist gf threadpick two and then get some self awareness
>>1686269Which one is the female?
>>1707646I don't get it how that is an illusion that we are fucking? Unfortunately, we are not fucking and I don't think we ever will.
>>1707603Got some nice creepshots you wanna share with your bros?
