If you have a bicycle and you didn't ride today, what's your excuse?

That is the question!

big party last night and ..... well....

Your grasp of English is better than that of many of us born to the language. ;-)

Thank you, Lisa!

Ingles, of course, in not my native tongue, but I put an excuse in my question for a reason ;)

Subtle differences. :-)

excuse:  1 a reason given to justify a fault or offence. 2 something said to conceal the real reason for an action.

reason:  1 cause, explanation or justification. 2 good or obvious cause to do something.

Shitload of errands after work that encompass most of the far northwest suburbs.

I had to take the L in because I was not coming from home, I have to take a car home tonight for use on a trip out of town tomorrow and after work today I have two meetings to attend. So, hauling my lazy butt on my trike at 9:30 at night just does not make sense to me after a very full day. I will rest on my accomplishments of the other 300+ days of riding and leave it at that.

Gene, you take it way too seriously ;)

I don't care for cycling.

Where's the like button?

Let`s see.. Barry cannot ride his bike because his arm is broken. Lisa thinks that is not an excuse. So a broken arm is no excuse not to ride your bike!?  :))

I know I know, I am just being stupid silly :p

That is not an excuse; that is a reason!

that's a good excuse.  hopefully you will be back on your bike soon.

I broke my left radius March 15 and had a plate installed March 25.  I'm still under an orthopedist's care and he's asked me to abstain from cycling until my arm is at full strength.

Too lazy

Lies and Slander!!! I hope your bike didn't hear you say that!

LOL

Got tickets to a play tonight and my date didn't want to ride because it was raining this morning. So we both took the el and unless it is pouring tonight, after work we will walk to the bar, then the theater and then home (with the option of more bars enroute of course). Walking is in some ways even better than biking.
