Cyclists can't have sons

Recommended Posts

One of my friends mentioned the other day that he would never start cycling, because he had a theory: A theory about how cyclists cannot have sons - only daughters. His logic was not sound, as it involved the squashing of certain "male producing bits", leaving only female producing ones behind. I obviously called him crazy and our friendship was frozen in time!

 

However... Since then, I have not been able to find a man, who has been cycling seriously for a considerable amount of time, who has successfully had a son of his own.

 

So, I was kind of hoping that some of you could dis-prove his theory, as my wife is now threatening (more than usual) to throw my bikes in front of a truck!

 

Please help.

 

Sincerely

 

Moderately concerned cyclist

Do you also ride with a rabbit's tale in your pocket? I'll ask my son if he does....

My two Sons are 33 and 30 respectively. We started cycling nine years ago but both my sons have sons. It sorts of disproves your theory does it not?
