BSNYC Friday Fun Quiz!

***UPDATE***



Braise the lard and holy luau!

My latest Outside column (or "Oootside" if you're Canadian) should materialize on the world wide whatever-it-is imminently, at which point you can be sure I'll pop back in here let you know.  In the meantime however I'm pleased to present you with a quiz.  As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer.  If you're right then go buy yourself something nice, and if you're wrong you'll see bicycling safety.

Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and always remember to wear a flotation device while cycling.

Air travel with my dog again. Lost coin toss again. I'm in pet carrier again.

Beginning to think I shouldn't let him use his coin.

Will tell him when he comes back from cockpit.

He has a license, but I don't recall him getting checked out on this equipment.

Message to Leroy's dog: you need to get your own coin.

What were the troubadours up to in Bombay?

Filthy Marin groupo fiddling marriage proposal soap opera is why I could never work in a shop. It's not that complicated, really.

Snobby,

What about the whistle!?! effective, yet i don't feel like a dick when i use it.

mikebike,

If you're talking about blowing an actual whistle, maybe you should.

Good article on the Outdoor thing, Wildcat.

I don't think there's any winning on methods of alerting people that you're going to pass them. somebody's going to fuss no matter what you say or do. Hell, even talking about it with other bikey people is a contentious thing. There's probably a thread on the dorkforums about it.

Most of my alerts are just me clacking my brake levers, which is usually enough noise to alert those in front of me. If they're wearing headphones, I will usually try for the silent pass. Only in situations that call for 100% recognition that I'm coming through (i.e. the idiot groups that walk 5 abreast, utterly blocking the path from traffic going either direction) I quit saying "on your left" (because identifying your left from your right is apparently a dying artform) and simply say "passing".

I just yell "get the fuck out of my way you filthy peasant" seems to work.

Thanks for the week, WCRM
Weekend scranii to all!
Why did I think of Trump and Kim Junk One when I saw the monkeys picture?

Grump said...

Whenever I'm passing walkers who have headphones on, I yell "Ramming Speed" and make drum noises with my voice. If that doesn't work, I'll yell Banzai and run them down like dogs.

The Friendly Giant said...

I usually just whistle my Jerome call when I want to pass.

Only old people seem to recognize the tune though. Sad

Bama: I thought of Putin and Trump when I saw the monkeys.

Quiz Q1: "Down on my knees for you, baby"

24th on the podi, "weed" indeed.

Lieutenant Oblivious said...

I think we should all start to say “OK, I’m going to check your prostate now” when we're about to pass someone while bike riding. It just might catch on.

ON YOUR LEFT!!

crosspalms said...

My great-aunt had the loudest whistle I've ever heard, but she needed both hands to do it. I can do a pretty loud one no-handed, but it's rare that I need to--the bell and sometimes "heads up!" usually work. And when it's so crowded I wish I had a car horn like that guy in the video the other day, I try to just slow down and not be an asshole. I don't always succeed (my wife would be the first to say I often see an opening and zip through). Patience is a work in progress

Bicycle rights on your left

Merlin said...

That is some good advice with the passing column. Often I find whistling effective. Also agree that speaking to who ever your overtaking for example "good morning" is highly effective.

I was cycling on a pretty busy shared pathway a few years ago and this old guy, probably at least 75 (I still see him too) was a few lengths ahead, we were jra very slow with lots of peds. So there was this lady who was kind of walking erratically in front of us. The old guy said something like “excuse me” and she looked over at him and said “ring your bell!” in a really snotty way. Straight back at her he said “MY VOICE IS MY BELL.”

hcdr said...

Nice article, WRM. For me, when riding around populated areas (or illegally riding on the footpath punishable by death in Australia) I tend to whistle a spritely tune, peppered with occasional "passing on your ma'am/sir".

I first saw the review of the Abus Nutflix items on this blog last week, which shows how out of touch I am regarding lock tech. Great concept, however if the anodized aluminum nut cover is less than 15mm diameter it would be very easy to snap off with a bolt cutter. Perhaps if the nut cover was made from high grade titanium and had more of a slant to it (like the fixed stop on the opposite side of the skewer) then it would be difficult to gain purchase using a large bolt cutter on the nut cover. I also wonder if a magnet can be used to simulate gravity if there is any attractive steel on the nut-side. I really do like this product, but it needs refinement in my view. Of course the only reasonable theft-proof solutions in an urban environment are to either ride a beater for lengthy lock-ups or use bike share. Even Pee-Wee's dream bike was stolen.
