Sadly many are so f'kin fat now it wouldn't surprise me. I worked in an office of about 80 people a couple of years back where I'd say 90% of my then colleagues were FLBs (Fat Lazy Bar$tards). It really was depressing going to work at that time. Putting up with all the anti cycling sh1t and "I'm so pathetic that I can't cycle" crap from these people, that I was glad when I left. Not a nice environment in which to work. After their lunch of chips, beans and sausages or pie, many of them would still troff on crisps, fizzy drinks, cream cakes and buns .Iainj837 said:I hope he means she 23 yrs of age and not 23 stone

I do that. It's a shoe thing. My office shoes have two purposes:gavintc said:It used to really wind me up when people would use the lift to move their lazy arses up or down one floor .
In Australia at least, cyclists are at higher risk than motorists: http://www.atsb.gov.au/media/36229/cross_modal_safety_comparisons.pdf. Note: This is only 1 source I've cited, but I believe it's representative.Tynan said:how many motorists are killed or seriously injured compared to cyclists?
They say im a nutter (in a nice way) for trying to do 26.2 miles per day when I could get away with just 13miles per day, they dont quite get it when I say I love every mile I do !Iainj837 said:Does anyone get funny looks or comments from work colleagues about the amount of miles they cycle to work, my commute is 20 miles plus a day round trip.
All they say you must be mad (but very fit) and they don't know how I do it.
this is people that don't even walk to work and they live about 5 mins away from work and they stiill get in their and drive lazy or what
It's very pleasing to say that my daughter likes to take the stairs at the local shopping centre car park. We often race my wife - who has to take the lift due to her disability - and win despite the extra walk to get to the stairssummerdays said:I occasionally succumb to the lift up to the 4th floor ... if I'm feeling tired ... but only then ... I don't even remember there is a lift when I'm leaving the offices and just head down the stairs... probably because I hate the standing around waiting for the lift in the first place
