Today, I went out to ride with my group. I had changed my wheels and was planning on laying low for most of the ride.
I figured, I'll hang around the back for today.
"Lot of people today", I said to Jose (one of the alpha males in the group) as I got to the bike shop. Jose gave the order to take off and we did. Most on the people on this ride were new to me. Strange. There is something in the air...
As we headed out of the city, I notice that I forgot to "sync my derailleur" with the wheels and the low gears were skipping the chain. No big deal, its a slow ride anyway. I'll just use the higher gears with a low cadence for today. No biggie really.
That's not the problem. But this is:
A few miles into the ride, two dogs started barking in front of the group. I was sitting in the back watching the whole thing unfold.
But the guy in front of me (one of the "unknowns") put out a can of pepper and spray the animals... and me! Pepper went immediately to my skin creating a rash from hell. I had my sunglasses on but that did little to avoid pepper going into my eyes.
I went ahead and try to approach the imbecile who did not take in consideration the people behind him when he decided to take action against the dogs.
When this happened:
Another dog on the side of the road "attacked". And by attack I mean, he just stood on the side of the road barking at the riders. No harm intended that I could see. When another rider (a different rider), took out another can of spray pepper and completely gave me a bath in this thing. He and his retard friend laugh at the dog. Again, I went into panic as I could not see at all and my exposed skin is burning like hell. I yelled out: "Stop doing that!! You got people behind you".
Then this: By trying to avoid hitting something while riding blindfolded, I went to the side of the road and got a flat.
No one stopped (not one of them) when I yelled "flat tire!!".
I will make some calls to see if anyone knows these two turds and have a word with them on Saturday morning if I see them.
No more sitting in the back for me.
So what do you think? Am I surrounded by idiots?
