Cycling Expressions Defined

Some of you enjoyed the funny questions posed by visitors to Bonaire. In that vein, and in anticipation of a great group bike ride here on Bonaire this Saturday, here are a few phrases that you might hear cyclists use, and what they really mean. They come from Scott Martin on the RoadBikeRider web site and weekly newsletter.

"It's not that hilly" - Be careful on the steep sections or you'll fall over -- backward.

"This energy bar tastes like real food" - This energy bar tastes like real dog food.

"This is a no-drop ride" - I'll need an article of your clothing. It's for the search-and-rescue dogs.

"It's not that far" - Yes, it is.
