Register for day passes through June 1, 2022!

We all need a good laugh!

With all of the gloomy and depressing news, statistics, and general BS floating around the Twitterverse, it’s about time we do something to lift up our spirits.

I’d like to hear your favorite biking-related jokes.

Since this isn’t a barroom and I can’t throw out the first drunk, I’ll throw out the first joke (compliments of Granddaughter Woo):

Why do some bikes have kickstands? Because they are too tired to stand up by themselves (rim shot!).

Ouch! Let’s hear your best (or worst) jokes.

See you along the I-O-Way next whenever.

I don’t have a joke, but the Tour de Quarantine has been providing us with laughs!!

A guy and his wife were climbing a hill on their tandem. The guy was struggling and struggling and sweating buckets, but they finally got to the top.
The husband said “That was tough. I didn’t think we would make it.”
The wife replied, “I didn’t either, so to keep us from rolling backwards I kept my break on the whole way.”

Another spousal tandem…..

A tandem rider is stopped by a police car.
“What’ve I done, officer?” asks the rider.
“Perhaps you didn’t notice, sir, but your wife fell off your bike half a mile back . . .”
“Oh, thank God for that,” says the rider – “I thought I’d gone deaf!”

E-bikers YELLING at bikers to “GET OUT OF THE WAY!”

You know you’re a cyclist when you hear someone crashed and you ask “How’s the bike?”

We lived in a really nice area in PA. Riding in a group on a charity ride, a car came flying by us on the center line. I held my ground as the car went flying by. When asked why I didn’t get over like everyone else, I said “If I’m going to get hit by a car, I’m OK with getting hit by a Bentley”.

Seen on People for Bikes (was it?) “Burma shave” signs at RAGBRAI some years ago:

Those new Spandex shorts
Sure make you look hip
Until you fall over
Because you forgot to unclip!

I was biking near a pasture last weekend, when I was attacked by a herd of cows. I wasn’t seriously hurt, just grazed. ? (Rim shot!)

See you along the I-O-Way next whenever.

Do you know why unicycles don’t go into taverns?

They can’t handle bars! ? (rim shot).

Keep smiling! See you along the I-O-Way whenever.

Bicycles are something that I cuddle and cherish more than my wife ! kakaka
My wife is jealous of my bicycle

My dog was a real nuisance in my small town. The neighbors constantly complained. The cops gave me several tickets. That darned dog wouldn’t stop chasing cars. I finally solved the problem when I took away his bicycle. ? (rim shot).

See you along the I-O-Way whenever.

Ol’ Joe rode his bike to and from work every day for 50 years, never missing a shift. When he finally wore out the treads and was almost riding on the rims, he packed away his bike and switched to the bus to get back and forth to work. He just wouldn’t retire. ? (rim shot).

See you along the I-O-Way whenever.

Since arguing with my wife a couple of weeks ago I decided to ride 50 miles a day to clear my mind. Now I’m 700 miles away and much happier.

I used to be obsessed riding my bike until my wife broke the cycle.
