Certainly people I meet I've never mentioned either climbing or honking.


It's not a 'derogatory' term - it's just a word used to describe riding out of the saddle, usually while making a higher effort level than usual. It's not specific to climbing either.

In the US, honking is to ride so hard you throw up, while climbing out of the saddle is 'danceuse', which I think is the French word.

You don't want to know about bonking ;)


and honking while you're bonking - definately not a great combo! :lol:
Convention? what's that then?

Get a pet goose.
Just remember, when you’re over the hill, you begin to pick up speed. :lol:
