Top 10 Cycling Excuses – For Climbing


– [Matt] Just ride at one speed, for
God’s sake. It must be a social occasion. You’ve got water in your bottle as well.
God, I wish I had my aero bike. You know, then the chain came off,
and they couldn’t get me footing, then I punctured. It’s a nightmare. And then I fell off. Then they got to the cafe
and it was closed. Sorry, lads. I didn’t realize we were
doing steep climbing today. If I’d known, I wouldn’t have
brought my aero bike. I’d have brought my lightweight bike. – [Dan] Unbelievable. – These wheels, these wheels
alone are 464 grams heavier than the ones on my climbing bike. Guys? Sorry about that, boys. I was just…was
just on recovery ride today, sorry. I’ve got to like, keep my
heart rate under 118. – Recovery ride? Absolutely incredible. ♪ [music] ♪ Lads. Thanks for waiting.
I can’t believe it. Both contact lens popped out on the climb. – Matt! – [Man 3] Matt! – And I dropped it. – Matt, we’re over here. Oh, lads! Cheers. No, both of my contact
lens popped out. I couldn’t believe it. – Where you been? – Always. Always. – Where you been, Dan? – Sorry, boys. I dropped my chain at the
bottom and it’s like all my momentum up that [inaudible 00:01:30]. – Bad workman blames his tools. – These self-adjusting electric gears
aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. I would’ve been out of here otherwise. Sorry guys, I didn’t realized we were
doing gradual climbs today. If I had known, I would have brought my
aero bike and not my light bike. – Unbelievable. – I definitely think the average speed,
though, is over 20 k an hour. So I totally, totally felt the drag
on this bike, whereas I wouldn’t have on my aero bike. Guys? There’s 28 spokes
in these wheels, 28 spokes. Think of the drag. Sorry about that, guys. – What took you so long? – The brakes are rubbing. – What one? – Here. – Looks all right. – No. God’s sake, Matt. – They’re rubbing! My brakes are rubbing! ♪ [music] ♪ I absolutely whooped their asses. – Where do you think Laurie is? – I don’t know. This is starting
to wind me up now, to be honest. Should I give him a call?
Dan, where are you, mate? – I’m at the Col de Morte Lanes,
got to the top. – You’re on the wrong climb, again. Bloody hell. All right, I’ll come down
and meet you in a sec. See you in a bit. Sorry, there in a minute. Just… Get. Crying out loud! Jesus. Really sorry, guys. Think I’ve got a
problem with the pedals. Just, I think I’ve got it in now. Poor 71-year old ex-national champ.
He doesn’t clip into pedals. Oh for…! Oh! Sod it! – It’s a cheap bike, too. – Okay. – Sorry guys. I didn’t realize we were
going off-road. Would’ve brought my mountain bike. As it is, I’ve got my
lightweight road bike and it’s really not suitable for this kind of thing.
Dan. Henry, mate. We’re not going down there are we? Christ. – Always waiting for Dan.
Always waiting. Unbelievable. – Sorry about that, boys. It’s a genuine
[inaudible 00:03:51]. You’re not allowed to actually slip stream until you
get a bit on your own. So their effort sort of thing. No, seriously,
mate. They’ve got new rules. They’re going to take off all races
and club rides. I’ve been on there. I bet you’ve got electrolytes
or something crazier in yours. I come out to enjoy myself and those two
are always spoiling it, picking on me. I’ve just got my feet in. Okay, now. Ouch. Sod it. Git! Jesus. – To be fair, we should probably
be nice to you now. – Yes! – Have you got your bus pass yet? – Wrong, forget it. I’m not
coming down, leave it. Bye. Forget it. ♪ [music.] ♪
