When you cycle you sometimes see odd or unexpected sights.
It might be completely contrary to the health benefits of cycling, but I often see cyclists trundling along with cigarettes dangling out of their mouths! I once saw a cyclist smoking a pipe! (Admittedly, he was an older chap.)
I often see a female cyclist "walking" her two greyhounds through Hyde Park. She cycles while holding their leads, and the dogs trot in front of her, almost like horses pulling a cart.
I once saw a cyclist with a full set of golf clubs strapped to his back. How he managed to negotiate traffic with such a dead weight on him I do not know.
But on Monday morning I saw something especially strange: a cyclist inching her way along the road while slowly eating stonefruit. Basically, she had the fruit in a supermarket bag hanging off the handlebars. She'd dive her hand in, extract a piece of fruit (I think they may have been yellow plums), eat it, then put the stone in her wicker basket. I guess she'd run out of time to have her breakfast before she left the house!
What's the strangest thing you've ever seen a cyclist do?
