Whilst out on my regular training ride a few months ago, I noticed a few riders which had pulled over with punctures. Some days, you see no one with punctures and on another day, you see a few. Anyhow, a few more miles into my ride a came across this lovely Italian girl, she also had a puncture, quite bizarre really. She was riding a pink Pinarello Dogma. Of course, I pulled over to help her out. Having lived in Italy some years ago, it was a great chance to brush up on the Italian language :D She was extremely capable and was back on the road pretty quickly. We rode together for approximately 5 miles chatting and having a laugh before we went our separate ways. She was a lovely signorina and a very good rider. I'm quite sure if I asked her out for dinner or even a drink she would of said yes......however I'm happily married with kids etc and I didn't ask! It was a great feeling and took me back to my single days when chatting up beautiful young ladys was a complete joy and thrill.

How many of you have had the same experience whilst being married and did you pursue or did you just say Addio !

Sure, but then I wake up.

BTW bonus points to you for using "whilst" correctly!

Lemme get this straight: you came across an Italian girl with a puncture? Dude, we have minors in here, like estone, so try and keep it clean.

I've never been good at striking up conversations with women.

In my case . . . . . . I would have pulled over to the side of the road, stopped the bike, attempt to unclip . . . . . . and fall over in front of her. So, no, my wife has nothing to worry about.

After uttering something clever like "Uh, you need some help?", I would have ridden off and never given it a second thought.

I wasn't a smooth talker back in the day and I don't think I've improved. My wife has nothing to worry about either.

Ok pinch me and I'll open my eyes. Sounds like a good day and you can walk with a swagger knowing you still got your groove.

I still don't see what stopped you from asking her out. Just tell your wife it was a beautiful Italian chick with a pink bike; I'm sure she'll understand completely.

Can't say that Ive had something happen quite like that but I'm single so it doesn't matter.

Nice! Always good to help out a nice looking gal with a puncture:)

I think it is important to always have these types of interactions with members of the sex you are attracted to. I don't have them often, but yeah, a little flirting with a girl reminds me of how fun flirting is and I think keeps you young at heart. I live with my girlfriend and never let things get too far, but I don't think it's a huge deal if I flirt with other girls once and awhile. I don't approach girls in bars to flirt, but in a situation like this, sure, why not ride a bit with a cute girl? If you bump into a cute girl and have a little fun, casual flirting, I really don't see the harm and actually think it is beneficial. I think relationships are headed for problems if the two people involved pretend they'll never have an attraction or lust after another person for the remained of their lives.

Whenever my gal returns home and tells me she got hit on that day it reminds me how lucky I am to have a beautiful girl as my gf. It doesn't really bother me.

I agree. There are some situations where it is better to ask for forgiveness than permission.

I will tell you of one of my encounters. I was out on a ride and came upon a girl sitting by the side of the road who looked distressed. I stopped to ask if she were OK. She was a runner and was in the course of her run she became dehydrated. I gave her my water bottle .

She had called for someone to come pick her up and was waiting. I stayed and talked with her until her ride arrived. A few moments after she got in the car she called to me and handed me back the water bottle. When I looked at the bottle back I saw that she had written her name and phone number on it. I gave her a call, we met, and ...
