Best excuse of the month/lame excuse of the month thread
« on: December 05, 2019, 06:31:39 PM »
In the interests of revitalising the stagnant forum main page header "lame excuse of the month" thingy, I'm starting this thread dedicated to best and lamest excuses for avoiding a ride, not going to the pub, not doing a particular trail, etc.

Starting off is a self-nomination by Dom: "Sorry, can't ride tonight. Eating some shellfish."

The following classic is from Gareth Curtains, depending on whether you believe him or not, it's either the best or worst excuse:

Well you all done a good job of avoiding me, was headed for Afan but my bike rack broke, then got bitten by a dog on Kilvey on route to Clyne, then my "mates" all avoid me. Merry Xmas guys

Presently unclear as to whether Gareth rode or not so may not be an excuse at all. We should pray for the dog as it's probable it won't survive. 😎😄

I don't think I have the intelligence to actually make something up quite as ridiculous as this, unless of course you are a fan of Eastenders or Emmerdale. I did eventually ride, but even then I rode shit. Feel free to say nothing new there then

The fates were definitely conspiring against you that day, mate.  This means that Dom is now lame excuse headliner.

My lame excuse for not riding tonight is that I suddenly found myself on a train posting about lame excuses for not riding!

On a train? Have you joined the extinct rebellion group? A little tip if you have, don't glue yourself to an electric train.

I was curious as to why I hadn't seen you for almost a year.  :D

As a rule I try not to glue myself to any train, electric or otherwise.
