So I have strange friends who decide to give me a chuckle. Obviously photo-shopped but who cares? It is still hilarious. First, you would never catch me riding with snow on the ground in my bib shorts and short sleeve jersey with no knee or arm warmers or jacket. Second, it is going up hill. I. WOULD. BE. HIS. MEAL.  At my age (62) and my weight (204) I don’t climb as fast as those young bucks who only weigh 130 pounds. So I am bear food. Third, some people have a weird sense of humor…and I LOVE IT!

My buddy, Jim, sent this to me. We used to ride together until health issues have taken him out of the cycling picture for several years. However, I love Jim’s comedic relief. I also tell him I don’t have to beat the bear. I only have to climb faster than him. 🙂

Hope your day shapes up to be a good one. There is absolutely nothing redeeming about this post unless I made you laugh. Then it can be said, “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Pr.17:22

    I loved the picture. This would be a good way to train cyclists for competition.

    Too funny! The first thing I thought of before I read the post was; “Well that will bring out the absolute very best in you!”

    I didn’t ride this last week… I better get back out there… just in case!

      We don’t have bears around here (that I know of) and hope I never find out! But it would be a great training idea.

    I laughed, I laughed – in fact, I could “bearly” contain my levity – and it felt good! Thanks, Bill!

    Unless you had told us we all would have thought that was on on the bike…good to have friends to make us laugh. Thanks for sharing it with us that comment on your blog. And I have had a great day…

      I’m sorry, I mean I’m glad, I told you. If I hadn’t you may have thought I was this young guy flying up the hill. Doggone it!

  5. Oh, yes, you made me laugh today, Bill! Nothing better than a joyful heart.

    I’d be bear food, too.
