    I half halted my bike today...

    Well, at least I can honestly say all that I've learned about riding is firmly ingrained in my body. I've been riding like crap lately, so I decided to start riding my bike a few times a week to help build up some leg muscle. I hadn't ridden my bike in a almost a year and found myself going down a fairly large hill toward the water. I was working both front and rear brakes to keep the bike in control down the hill and somehow decided sitting tall and back might make the bike slow down. A woman walking her dog saw me and bust a gut laughing. I quickly found out she rides too and told me that she'd never seen anyone half halt a bike before. Guess you had to be there, but it sure was funny.

    Well if nothing else, you will have a well trained bike!

    As a long time dog trainer, I have many times, told my shopping cart to "stay".

    In my car, I "put leg on" sometimes, to get the car to go.

    Was just struggling earlier tonight with a chicken who needed some doctoring on her foot, and as she kept flapping around, I found myself telling her "whoooaaaa...."- my husband had to remind me it was the wrong animal for that :)

    Oh lmao! This thread is hilarious!

    I'm a bicycle commuter, averaging 120 to 200 blocks a day. I find myself saying 'hey hey' to my bike when i'm going a bit fast or having to turn quickly, just like I do when riding. I also go into a 'modified' two point when going over big bumps on the bike, lol.

    I cluck at people, traffic lights etc. I don't ride a bike but when I'm on the bus I have found myself doing half halts and asking for left or right bend LOL. But I'm such a weirdo that these relatively small oddities go unnoticed amongst the very obvious talking and gesturing to myself...

    ETA: Anebel, do you also give a jiggle on an invisible leadrope? I've done that once or twice!
