Bike heckling

Things that have been yelled at me while cycling:

"You're not a car!!"
(From the car behind me, while patiently standing in the left turn lane waiting for the green arrow.)

"Your bike is hot!!"
(While Kerry rode my orange singlespeed down 5th street on our way to the cherry orchards.)

"You've almost caught them!"
(While desperately trying to catch back on to the main group in Berkeley's hilly crit, yelled by my sister.)

"Pfeiffer, Pfeiffer, she's our biker..."
(While desperately trying to catch back on to the main group in Berkeley's hilly crit, yelled by my chemical engineering classmates.)

"Don't wear spandex! You'll get a yeast infection!"
(With the Cal women's cycling team, on our way through Walnut creek. Comment came from an adolescent boy who likely just finished the women's reproductive organ section in health class.)

While yelling from motorists and onlookers is not always helpful to me in my bike-riding endeavors, it turns out that they're technically correct most of the time.

you know those walnut creekers - always concerned for your health. we know what's best for you.

Salut!, This website is excellent and so is how the theme was developped. I like some of the comments also although I would suggest we all keep it on topic to add value to the message. It will be also encouraging to the writer if we all could pass it around (for those who have social accounts such as a reddit, facebook,..). Thanks again.

Good day everybody, This webpage is good quality and so is how the matter was developped. I like some of the comments too even though I would prefer we don't err from the main point so that to add value to the message. It will be also encouraging to the writer if we all could mention it (for some of us who use bookmarking services such as a reddit, facebook,..). Again, Thanks..

I didn't think there were any sites with content this good. There sure is a lot of trash out there online. I'll definitely be back to check out future posts...Thanks

I really liked reading about Bike heckling (Katieblog) and thought it was well worth the read. The only other site I found on AOL wasnt as good as this one, thanks.

Hi there, your webpage is promoted in a radio show! Very good work mate. Your stuff are genuinely excellent and bookmarked. Regards

Im sorry for the possible off-topic Guys, but could you inform me which web host you are using right now I have a problem because my current web hosting company bluehost.com is kicking me off. They say that our website is using too many server resources. But our website only gets 100 visitors per day. Anyway, what would be your recommendations? Are you happy with your web hosting company? I am checking LCN at the moment, but is it real that they can provide unlimited disk space? I have contacted them and they say something like 2000gb disk drive costs only $10 per month, so if some day we will start running out of disk space we will simply add a new 2000gb drive so can continue updating.. What do you think about it? Any ideas and web hosting company name suggestions are much appreciated.

Good content should rank higher and get more traffic than bad content

Nice!! Great Ifo. Great People. Great Blog. Thank you for all the great sharing that is being done here.

I love the way you write and also the theme on your blog. Did you code this yourself or was it done by a professional? I'm very very impressed.

This is a fascinating post. Looking forward to reading more of your writing.

I keep listening to the news speak about getting free online grant applications so I have been looking around for the best site to get one.

Hi, please keep us posted when we will see a follow up!

Good stuff, do inform me when you finally post something similar!

I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz reply back as I'm looking to create my own blog and would like to know wheere u got this from. thanks
