SLANG ON THE BIKE.
Expressions I'sed by Bicyclists a
Like all the other forms of sport.
bicycling has developed a aew set of
slang expressions. In baseball, for
instance, it is said ot "butter
fingered'' players that they "couldn't
catch cold," or "couldn't hit a bal
loon." Every form of sport must

of the cyclist is fairly good. Iu dis
cussing the relative merits of two
racers on the track, it is usually
said of one that he "can ride rings
around" the other, which means, of
course, that he can stop on the track
and describe circles and still win the
race. The expression has taken the
place ot "ride him to a standstill."
