The Fit Recovery Cycling Dictionary defines Weight thusly:
The mass of one’s @$$ (and all of the other bits). This is often a topic of conversation that begins like this, after one has been cycling regularly with significant effort and eating well: “My God, you’ve lost a lot of weight! How have you managed such a feat?! You look so fantastic and healthy!”
The mass of one’s bicycle. Not surprisingly, as the mass of one’s bicycle decreases, cost increases at an exorbitant rate. In most cases one gets a pass on the cost of one’s bicycle if one’s family and home is properly cared for because as the cost of the bike increases, the amount one rides one’s bicycle increases. As a result, medical bills and the need for prescription medication decreases exponentially. Thus, one’s cost of living decreases – even with the cost of the bike and all of the kit required to ride it…
This is also known as a layman’s explanation for the Theory of Relativity.
Be cool, fit and healthy.
And remember this: Motorists who honk at you and flip you off do so because they wish they could be like you when they grow up. Don’t be upset by them. Have pity; they’re about to find out the hard way that Type II Diabetes isn’t a new Turbo Diesel pickup truck motor.
True story 😉
Yeah somehow I just don’t see that theory floating at home 😉
+1 on the diabetes comment though
We ex-drunks get a bit more compassion that way. 😉
