How to Date A Cyclist

So you met someone and you want to go on a bike date. How do you make it a good bike date? Well, there are a few important things you should know.

First of all it helps if you can both bike in the same direction at the same time on the same side of the street:

I rode behind her, around midnight. The streetlights casting rolling shadows through her spokes. Each light’s shadow would pass her in the silence of the night. It was almost completely still around us, as if we were alone in this world. Just the sound of the freewheels and pedaling, as we meandered our way through the darkened city. Her soft brown hair would move in the breeze, and I could almost catch the scent of her. My dynamo light would flicker, and create reflections in her stainless fender. I needed this very moment to last forever. I fell in love three times that night. With her, with my city, and with our first of many bicycle dates together.

Oh god. I hope I never have to make that decision.

That is so true about kickstands being useful in the grip of passion!

Helmet bonk! I’ve actually had that happen to me.

Kissing at red lights is SO FUN. And I, too, have experienced the “helmet bonk.”

Another fun game is to try to pinch your mate’s butt while riding.
