: We love our tandem in every way EXCEPT for those people who cast aspersions
: on my efforts at the back! These comments are rarely anything more
: original than "she's not pedalling", spoken to my husband, of
: course, as though I were deaf or perhaps just not listening as well as not
: pedalling! A very few display a little more originality though, sadly,
: never witty enough to raise a smile. Most times its the men who find this
: game such a laugh - would they make the same comment if the stoker were
: male? I have developed the "grin and bear it" response but hate
: to have to be so accepting of such annoying people.
: I'm wondering what other ladies have found to be the most satisfying
: response. If they can shout at me, what can I shout at them?
: I look forward to some good ideas - our next long ride is next week.
The one I use is "We've got a deal... If she stops peddling I stop steering".
We recently went round Thetford forest and the local kids who were plying in the one of the bomb holes yelled out "Come on then, do a jump then!", to which the reply was obvious.
"Pah! Jumps are for kids! You should see us pop a wheelie!"
