Wise thoughts…?

IMG_9812IMG_9820IMG_9822IMG_9817I thought it might be nice to share an insight into some of our conversations each day.
With 8 hours on the bike, you might imagine that wise thoughts would flow and brilliant ideas flourish. I’d like to present an alternative concept: that all the untouched corners of the mind are delved into and the most unusual questions asked.
Typically one of us might be riding along, deep in thought about anything and everything (or perhaps just one thing) under the sun, when all of sudden the opportunity arises to ask of the opinion from a friend. It is at this precise moment that the most ridiculous questions are presented.
Here is a list of just a few of them:

How far do you think a fuel tanker lorry could drive if it used its tanker as its fuel tank?
How many revolutions would a jockey wheel have to do to get to Tarifa?
Do you think there is a company in the world that just paints things yellow?
Do they really still say ‘speak now or forever hold your peace’ at weddings?
How far do you think a robot lawn mower would go if it escaped the garden?
If you had all the money in the world, what would your dream bike be? (This took a very long time to discuss)
How on earth does a boat with a concrete floor, float?
How come a cloud is made up of water vapour but doesn’t drop as rain straight away?
What do you think happens if two people on the same car insurance policy crash into each other?
Can you remember all 4 types of Cheerio?
Is Daniel Ratcliffe always seen as Harry Potter in every film he does?
How come Nutella don’t make white chocolate spread?

So there you have it, just a few of the odd ones I can remember. Make of them what you will! You could argue that we should be talking about more useful things like careers or future plans but they sound complicated and serious… Far more fun we think, to discuss the utterly absurd.

  1. Here’s a thought…

    Has anyone yet muttered the words “Are we there yet?” on your big trip – or has it become part of the daily routine !
    P.S Are you at the ‘Big Rock’s now?

    1. Hi Mark,
      Weirdly that is not a question we asked very often! Instead one of our most used phrases was ‘we’ll make it up tomorrow’. This was frequently used when we fancied doing a short day and needed an excuse, ha!
      Not heading to Gibraltar, although we did get a glimpse of it. Tarifa was beautiful though!
