I was taking a break from my century ride this afternoon and resting by a pond along the route. To my utter astonishment, I observed two waterfowl pedaling a tandem down the path from the road to the pond. That was truly a pair-o-duck-cycle sight! 🤪 (rim shot).
The local baker needed a part-time delivery driver, so he hung a sign in the bakery window. With the unemployment situation being the way it is, I figured I could use the extra dough, so I went in to apply for the job.
The owner, a plump little fellow named Mr Pillsbury, told me that he couldn’t pay much, as business had fallen flat due to C…[Read more]

I participated in the Trans-European bike race last year. I was russian as fast as I could, but I couldn’t catch the winner. It must have been the extra danish and malta milkshake I had for breakfast, because I was so hungary! 🤪 (rim shot).
My local bike shop was a mom-and-pop operation run by a couple who lived through the Great Depression of the 30’s and the Great Recession of ‘08-09. They have this sign at the cash register: “In God we trust. All others pay cash.”
I saw this sign the other day went I went in to buy a bike helmet that had a built-in illumination source for nig…[Read more]
