Bizarre Cycling Traditions

I’ll admit it. I was never one to hoist his bike over his head. I guess it goes back to my days as a messenger. If I made it through the day without being killed and to the bar afterwards before happy hour ended, that was adulation enough. In my later years, I never graduated up to bibs which would have made any showing of belly un-pro. I think pros celebrated their victories by getting extra pellets back in their team busses. For those that do enjoy the hoist, what mileage marker is the minimum for such a showing of victory? My season has been pretty abysmal, so if I were to make it down the block after about 3 gel packs, I would be apt to hoist and then need oxygen and compression garments.

If there is such a minimum mileage what would it be?
