Do real roadies stop at starbucks?

OK - it's no secret the town IAB and I live in is a bit....how should I put this...."better than you" (snotty). LOL

The roadies don't stop at stop lights but they DO, however, stop at Starbucks. I was lmao yesterday when we stopped in for tea and coffee and there was a whole gaggle of "roadies" dressed to the nines in their best winter riding gear getting their caffeine fix.

The only place we ever stop is at a gas station for more gatorate or dunkin donuts for a pee stop. :monkeydance:

Where's Loco? They do a pasty ride that has a stop at a coffee shop in the middle.












yes, it's pastry, but if you imagine the midnight nurp picture. Pasty is funnier.

I'd like to take the Starbucks roadies on one of my rides. I stop to refuel at a few very scary places. One is a gas station that doubles as a taxidermy/ammo shop.

Don't forget they also ride two wide, taking up half a lane on the busiest road in town and don't seem to care that cars want to get around.

Of course, it's not just the roadies. Everyone in town is an asshole. The only way to survive in this town is to be a bigger asshole than the person next to you. "I knew it. I'm surrounded by assholes!"

Did you just call your wife an asshole?

If it's the only coffee shop, then yes they do. Roadies here stop at mom and pop coffee shops.

I only stop at stores when I'm dying and out of food/water. I figure when I stink that bad, it wouldn't be appropriate to sit in a nice establishment where other people are trying to enjoy their coffee

I should point this out: most road rides you clip into your pedals at the start and then you clip out at the finish. No stops for anything else.

Espresso and Cappuccino is a nice break from the monotony of those 4 hour rides.
