5 Types of Bicyclists You Want to Ride With Anywhere

2. The Bone-Breaker – An intrepid bicyclist, with experiences borne out of countless falls and trips to the hospital. Our immediate thought however, would be that this type of bicyclist will cause disruptions to any type of bike ride.  He/she would be the one who would go ahead of the peloton, trying to impress the others; ride on the sidewalk, do wheelies, bunny hop on road humps or do just about any stunt that if done by a lesser bicyclist would be enough to land the bicyclist in the hospital or worse.  There is simply no way to contain this type of bicyclist in a narrow, straight road. 

     Is this type of bicyclist fun to be with in a ride?

Well, yes and no.  It is no because if we think of safety first, the bone-breaker will be the first to be denied to join the ride.  On the other hand, the ride maybe boring without him/her.  The stunts he/she does can break the tensions and provide comic relief during a long ride, as faceplants have been known to elicit laughter (see funniest videos on TV for examples) if injuries to the said bicyclist are not too serious, of course.  We can only tolerate his/her antics but then again, just as long as he/she is careful and only do stunts that he/she is truly capable of, all is best left to enjoy themselves.
