I've invented a new sport

It's called...The Foreigner Olympics. (It's close relative is called The Klutz Olympics.)

What, you may ask, is the Foreigner Olympics?
It's when foreigners attempt an activity that is normal for the locals.
And risky for the foreigners.
(At least risky for the klutzy ones.)

The pictures first...I'll see if you can guess what the event is:

Need a little more help?

Yes...you guess correctly! It's The Broom Joust wherein you ride home on your bike with a long-handled object and attempt to skewer anyone who happens to be in reach of the broom handle.






Seriously, people. DON'T GIVE LONG-HANDLED OBJECTS TO KLUTZES WHO RIDE A BIKE!






There should be citation for that. A BWK (Biking While Klutzy). Of course, if there was one of those, I'd never make to the ferry on time.

  2. Thanks for the giggle!
    This post reminded me of dashing to the station on my bike many years ago in the pouring rain - one hand on the handle bars and one hand holding an umbrella over my head. I did get a few funny looks but at least I made the train without ruining my hairstyle!
