    Lownje Shorts - NNC wisdom Lownje Style

    For those who have matriculated beyond the advice of Beginner’s Corner...

    1.) When delivering a snot rocket, it helps to do so while singing the three note jingle for:

    in your head. Snot Rock-ets! I should say, it helps you... the person behind you still thinks it’s totally gross.

    2.) “Patchy Fog” is a pleasant meteorological euphemism for 100% humidity. Don’t be fooled, sheeple. Patchy fog evokes an image of strolling down a cobbled street in Merry Olde England with a comely strumpet on each arm. 100% humidity, on the other hand, connotes crotch rot in a god-forsaken jungle.

    3.) Applying chamois cream is not the time for thoughtful introspection. One poorly timed, “Hmmmm.” while slathering butter on your junk can so easily be misconstrued as public lewdness.

    Share your wisdom, lownje denizens. The next generation is counting on you.

    4.) In a paceline, the order has nothing to do with speed or strength. It’s all about proximity to your last meal at Taco Bell. If it’s been a few days, you can pull at the front with reasonable safety. If you had a Burrito Supreme for lunch... expect your ass to stay at the back. Try to jump the line, and your friends will drop you like third-period French.

    5.) Mold in your bottles??? Once a week or so, try substituting vodka for water on your ride. Just make sure to invest in a good computer with GPS, so you can see where you rode once you sober up. Maybe a little extra cash for bail money...

    If your bar end plug is starting to slip out, avoid trying to slap it back into place while riding.

    Trust me on this one.

    I don’t know, Retro... that’s teetering precariously on being actually useful advice.

    6.) If your riding buddy is attacked by a spitting cobra, wrestle him to the ground and defecate on his eyes... or is it urinate??? Hmmm. Better vomit on him also just to be safe.

    Speaking of suck...

    7.) When you suck somebody’s wheel, the transitive law of STDs says you are technically sucking every wheel that they’ve ever sucked. That’s why instead of tire sealant I use spermicidal jelly. You can’t be too safe.

    8.) Worried about what to carry on your ride??? The only tool you really need to carry on your bike is a loaded gun. Just wave that at any other passing cyclist and they’ll be tickled pink to give you anything else you might need: a spare tube, a water bottle, a cell phone, cash, their bike, their spouse, etc.

    9.) Cycling at high speed on the MUT is dangerous. To alleviate the stress, make a game out of it. Run over a jogger - 20pts. Mow down a baby in a stroller - 50pts.

    10.) If a motorist harasses you on the road, don’t engage them. Better just to take down their license... bribe someone at the DMV for their address... and burn down their house while they’re sleeping. They’ll think twice before harassing another cyclist.

    And to think, I almost didn't open this thread because I prefer bibs to shorts.

    I second this one.

    It took me a few times to work out the unfortunate physics involved before I stopped doing this.

    11.) When overtaking a cyclist or a pedestrian, common courtesy dictates a bell ring, or a hearty “On Your Left”. But common courtesy died in November of 2016, so now it’s okay to just scream “OUT OF MY WAY, YOU DECREPIT SACK OF S#IT!!!”

    12.) To save weight and increase aerodynamics, consider drilling holes in your carbon forks and going with an 8-spoke wheel. You’ll be screaming in no time.*

    13.) Strong. Light. Cheap.

    15.) Sure, you can spend $300 on a fancy set of lights for your ride... ooorrrr... you can buy 300 lazer pointers from The Dollar Store. I know which one I’m getting... and soon everyone else in a 5 mile radius will, too.
