The posessing it isn’t much if a story. Its more of WHY I possess it. There was a Suf related bet. I lost. My punishment was to ride up an actual volcano wearing it. I can’t remember what the bet was for. I’ll ask Sir Michael, he was involved.
Umm, I beg to differ. It’s a…goat suit.
Well there was a shop. I gave them money. They gave me a goat suit
Selective memory or true forgetfulness? I’m pretty sure I’d remember the details of why I had to ride my happy a$$ up a volcano in a goat suit! Then again my happy a$$ ain’t riding up a volcano period!
It would likely be up Mount Eden, or One Tree Hill, or Mount Wellington. This is Mount Eden:
KNIGHTS of SUFFERLANDRIA Team Update
The Knights of Sufferlandria team was set up as a staging for the Knights of Sufferlandria to make their assault on the Tour of Wahfoolicouchlandria.
The Women of Sufferlandria team has overtaken the Wahfooligans, but the Knights are in 3rd. And there is still too much time left.
But The Knights are protectors of ALL Sufferlandrians.
So… the Knights of Sufferlandria team is hereby announcing refuge to ALL Sufferlandrians who are either seeking refuge or looking to assist the Knights of Sufferlandria in their assault on the Tour with a non-Sufferlandrian name.
We welcome - with open arms - and encourage ANY Sufferlandrian looking for refuge, Sufferlandrian admirers, and those with visions of future knighthood to join. Help the Knights show those Wahfooligans that Sufferlandrians are alive and kicking and will not take the Tour of Waxahachie lying down…
I’m in. Where do I sign?
Well, Sir @Glen.Coutts, you have already signed up.
But please do encourage as many other Sufferlandrians to sign up as possible!
Aw, man. I just popped for C-19. There goes my Tour.
geez. r we starting already with our cycling excuses? Sorry Sir. Hopefully you don’t get hit too hard.
@AlexEllermann Aww man. Very sorry to hear that. Hope those pain suckers can help keep it from getting too bad and you recover quickly.
As for myself, I’m 2,000 miles from home. my dad’s service is Saturday. Hopefully I can figure out a way to ride the tour without my own bike in some form or fashion. After all, even once my dad couldn’t ride his bike he still found a way to ride. So certainly I should be able to, too.
The Women of Sufferlandria has the same ethos. So feel free to join us too We’ve always been a mix of Knights and Sufferlandrians.
I’m very sorry for your loss, Sir Evan. May your father’s memory be a blessing.
Y’know, you can always ride using RPE at a local gym. Day passes usually aren’t too expensive.
Hey poach your own, @DameLisa !
Sorry, I know I’m behind here, but I’m still back at “there was a shop”…that sold you a goat suit.
@CPT_A At this point this goat is about to kick your Wahoolimabobutt.
The end goal is the same!
Went to sign up (and/or make a donation, still on my fence about riding this thing) and had this reminder of times gone by. GSL may not be kicking ass this year but I’m sure the regulars will be here there or somewhere. Good luck to all, DPF for the win.
I hear you Sir @JamesT. Physically, I am deffo on the side of the fence that’s riding. Mentally, I’m not quite there.
The incessant use of the term Wahooligan (not offended by it, just don’t identify with it in any way whatsoever) keeps chipping away at my drive to ride. I’ve printed out my version of the tour poster for my now posterless pain cave and hoping watching a human in a goat suit doing Stage 1 will give me some needed mojo.
