Get your notepad out and let's see who gets the highest score... also, sign the petition...

After the viral success of Shit Mountain Bikers Say, it was only a matter of time, eh.

Take out your notepad. Add a bonus point if it's a Rapha notepad. Then give yourself a mark for each of the things in the video that you've said with your own mouth... post your score below!

Also head to www.peopleforbikes.org - they're the people that put the vid together and they're trying to get a million people signed up to support a better future for cycling in America. Looks like they're only looking for US-based road.cc readers to sign, if that's you then get signing!

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

3. Well, and the snot-rocket thing, if you count that as a word.

Seven, including blowing snot from my nostrils while riding ...  4 Does blowing snot from both nostrils count as two? If so, make it eight!  4

6 but i counted washing my mouth out with a drink rather than spitting it out because i didn't like it. Built for downhill rather than climbing.

Four. "Don't talk about the Tour today / today's stage", "Is that carbon", and spitting. Low score because I've never raced or ridden with racing cyclists, I guess.

Also good to see Greg Rusedski on a bike.

not too many thankfully though I did once sulk all afternoon at work after someone told me Cav had fallen and broken his collarbone in the tour ("don't tell me about todays stage man!"). I was even more annoyed when I got home to find it was actually Wiggins and I'd had my afternoon incorrectly spoilt.

snot and can I borrow some money?
But then I'm not a proper cyclist.
Although I do say "you could lift his bike with 1 finger" quite a lot!
