    What weird stuff do you do?

    Some of my weird habits I have noticed plus other random stuff,

    When I slow down because of a hill or somthing, I look down at my gears like theres a problem thats why im going slow, or look behind me as if Im slowing down for someone ,

    You can tell if a drivers a D**K just by the distance he leaves as he passes you,

    You nod a other cyclists

    The 2nd n 3rd are normal.
    I sometimes look down to the chainrings to see if it's me or am I still on the big ring.

    On long solo rides I sometimes play 'spit golf' - aiming at something at the side of the road, or talk to myself using dodgy accents. :huh:

    i say hello to cows

    theres a dog in the street next to mine that barks a hello back if you say hello to it.

    i sometimes talk to myself on long solo rides.

    I keep checking my rear tyre to make sure it's not flat (whilst riding too!)

    I also pump them up every couple of days

    I try and keep my cadence above 80 all the time!

    Sing songs

    Not just any songs though, songs that I would normally think are shoot but for some reason just seem to come into my head when cycling!

    See exhibit A....i think it must have been used as music during a montage during the Tour de France years ago when i was a wee boy because it (the bassline in particular) just makes me think of guys like Lemond, Millar and co

    I often tell dogs to f*** off when they charge at the gate barking and making me jump when I cycle past (and recently I called a dog a much worse word when it charged at me as I cycled (very fast as a result) past a small farm, not realising it was tethered so it could only reach the end of the drive).

    For some reason only when a car is behind me, I sometimes unclip when approaching a junction and stretch my leg, wiggling my foot as though I've got cramp or something.

    Sometimes commentate to myself pretending I'm in some epic stage of a major race to get me through a tough spell.

    I've done the false waiting for someone look in the past when struggling on a hill during a sportive.

    Sing childrens' songs. I think they are usually sang in my head but sometimes they slip out.

    Yo ho ho ho, doing the pirate dance.

    I sing rubbish songs and talk to any cats and dogs that I pass.

    Ditto. Daft question, but how do you measure your cadence?
