Back to Front: Getting On Terms Again




("Kahdeksan-Sarvinen Hirviö," spotted in Finland)

One thing that happens when you prepare for a big move is that you go "off the back" in terms of keeping abreast of the news, and so I now find myself in the position of having to draft off of the team cars and claw my way back into the peloton of current events.  For example, apparently we're about to go over some sort of "fiscal cliff," which doesn't really concern me anyway because I'm fucking loaded.  Also, last week saw the running of the World's Smarmiest Fred Ride, officially known as the Gran Fondo Giro d'Italia. The point of this ride was to settle once and for all the question of who's more unctuous--Italian bicycle racers:

Or Italian race car drivers:


Though ultimately the only way to settle that one is to poll the area prostitutes.  (Or at least swab them and bring the results to a lab.)

One thing's for sure though, which is that human beings don't get more unctuous than this guy:


They say that the Lion King is so greasy that a laying on of hands from him actually creates a clear spot on your flesh.  It's like he's a donut and you're a brown paper bag.  This is what you look like before an encounter with Cipo:


And this is what you look like after:


And all they did was shake hands.

By the way, while in Miami, Mario Cipollini and Danilo DiLuca also filmed the pilot episode of their new TV drama series, "The V Squad:"

They play a pair of rogue gynecologists who are on the wrong side of the law but the right side of the mons pubis, and their manager pitched it to Cinemax as "Burn Notice" meets "ER" meets "Miami Vice" meets a sexual harassment suit.  Rumor has it that the casting agent actually wore rubber gloves to the audition.  It's already getting lots of buzz, and Danilo DiLuca in particular is being touted as the "poor man's Duchovny."

Speaking of being "off the back," it's been awhile since I've ridden a bicycle recreationally for more than an hour, which means any attempt to do so now in a group setting would result in my being dropped in fifteen seconds rather than my usual forty.  Nevertheless, I look forward to resuming my bicycle cycling activities just as soon as I finish unpacking, which should be sometime this spring.  Fortunately, I now live within easy striking distance of the better cycling routes in the area, which should put to rest once and for all the sordid rumor that I have moved to Queens.  In the meantime, I'm taunted not only to my proximity to these rides, but also by emails inviting me to partake in events like the "Deloitte Ride Across Britian:"


Deloitte Ride Across Britain 2013 from Threshold Sports on Vimeo.

Presumably there are bike bloggers in the world who can just decide to go to Britain and Fred around for nine days, but I am not one of them.  And even if I was, I tend to shy away from rides that involve tents:


In theory I like the idea of camping.  In practice, I like walls and ceilings and televisions and speedy Internet connections and flushing toilets that I can access without first having to go outside.  This is because I am what true woodsmen call a "simpering wussbag."  In fact, I haven't camped since my "teen tour," which is when they send a bunch of kids from the New York suburbs away for the summer so that they can point and laugh at the rest of the country.  (In case you didn't know, we think you're hilarious.)  Plus, if some guy with a shirt that says "crew" on it is going to pitch your tent for you and everything, why not just go all the way and stay in a hotel?  Then again, I guess it's as good an excuse as any to carry your Best Made axe with you, and maybe if you ask the guy in the crew shirt nicely and slip him a fiver he'll go cut something down with it for you.

Anyway, the Deloitte Ride Across Britain goes from John O'Groats to Land's End:


I'm not really familiar with British geography, but I'm pretty sure both of those are mail order outdoor clothing catalogs.

Of course, the hallmark of any Fred ride is the abundance of  crabon componentry:


As well as the distinctive rollout:


In an elite-level bike race the riders roll out gracefully and engage their pedals with a near-simultaneous "click."  In a Fred ride, they struggle and heave themselves onto their bicycles in various ungainly ways, like a bunch of seals making their way onto a beach.

Still, seeing a pod of Freds migrate across a vast distance is one of the most spectacular displays in nature:


Especially when they change position to relieve the incessant pressure on their taints:


Which, as it happens, is also inspired by seal behavior:


("Hey Fred!  Quit biting my moves!")

Nine days later, the Fred pod reaches its breeding ground, the fists punch the air, and Morgan Freeman ceases his soporific narration:


By the way, wardrobe disparity is another hallmark of the Fred ride.  In an elite-level bicycle race the competitors wear more or less the same amount of clothing.  In a Fred ride the attire will vary from full tights and heavy jackets to shorts and sleeveless jerseys and everything in between.  This is because roughly 75% of the group is unable to gauge the weather correctly and is therefore profoundly uncomfortable for most of the ride.  It's not unusual during one of these rides to see an overdressed Fred who has been forced to shed layers and is sporting a fanny pack bursting with more clothing than most riders even own, while directly behind him is another Fred who is woefully underdressed and in the early stages of hypothermia.

Anyway, the best part of the ride is when the Freds get to justify their ultra-light crabon bikes by lifting them over their heads:


Don't try lifting a steel bike triumphantly after nine days of bicycle cycling.  You could be killed.

Lastly, in other Fred news, a reader tells me the latest company to employ the time-traveling t-shirt-wearing retro-Fred from the planet Tridork Bret is Sportstiks stick-on tridork numbers:


Here's a closer look:


Though I think they could have found a better model:


But what do I know about marketing?

I wonder if they're inflating the numbers for the course (as well as the time):

The traditional distance by road is 874 miles (1,407 km) and takes most cyclists ten to fourteen days; the record for running the route is nine days.

(True, it's Wikipedia's entry of Land's End to John o' Groats, but I'm dubious on their accounting.)

I'm getting disturbed worrying about where you've been forced to move, Snob. You're no longer one of my fellow residents of Brooklyn and you're denying you're in Queens. You left Brooklyn because of the money, so I'm doubting you're in Manhattan (though I guess the rougher parts of Harlem remain cheap). So I'm guessing obscure bits of Manhattan or, heaven forfend, the Bronx or Staten Island.

If none of these is correct, meanwhile, you're no longer Bike Snob NYC, which is sad.

Thanks RANTWICK and Frilly! I owe it all to my amazing lead out train: Right said, streepo and theEel.

IM, not to worry. The 'within striking distance' of nicer cycling routes can only mean that he's in upper Manhattan - perhaps Washington Heights or Inwood. Things are fairly reasonable there real estate-wise and fairly hipster-free. See how those 2 seem to go hand in hand?

What this DOES mean is that Snobby will be logging miles, getting on 'the program' and picking off Strava KOMs from Strictly Bicycles to Bear Mt and everywhere in between. Even if he has to ride a motorcycle to do it.

McFly said...

Velominati Rule #49: Keep the rubber side down.
It is completely unacceptable to intentionally turn one’s steed upside down for any reason under any circumstances. Besides the risk of scratching the saddle, levers and stem, it is unprofessional and a disgrace to your loyal steed. The risk of the bike falling over is increased, wheel removal/replacement is made more difficult and your bidons will leak. The only reason a bicycle should ever be in an upside down position is during mid-rotation while crashing. This Rule also applies to upside down saddle-mount roof bars.23

Also, that seal was planking like a BAWSSSSSSSSSSS.

They've asked me to ride in the middle barefoot.

My dog explained they're doing an homage to The Beatles' Abbey Road album cover, restaging it as a living tableau.

Of course, that doesn't explain the T shirt reading "I Am The Walrus" they want me to wear.

Wow, sorry I missed all the high and low and in between comments here. I left work early for a quick check-up or 'well visit' with my doctor yesterday afternoon. Not to worry, all of my parts are humming along just fine with a minimum of creakiness.

After one inquiry, my doctor said to me "Oh, you're a baby". Not sure if he meant that I'm young (I was born a few years before the summer/ winter of love). He may have meant 'Don't be such a big baby', which had me wondering if he's been hanging out with leroy's dog. But it occurred to me that maybe he meant it as 'Hey, baby!' and he's been influenced by McFly (in a gender generic sort of way).

Anyway, I can attest (and may have even suggested in 'offline' conversation) that I also think bgw should write a book.

There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
