Originating from the word combination of bike path and athlete / triathlete, a PATHLETE is a cyclist who rockets down bike paths in full race gear, blowing by kids, old ladies, dogs, strollers.
The Pathlete does not actually however compete in organized activities, just a poser trying to impress the uneducated.
Massive egos and superiority complexes rule the pathletes.
Pathletes ride the newest, fastest, shiniest - but are still the slowest - in groups - which is why they always ride alone.
Should they ever enter a race, they would be crushed by other racers.
Rider 1: "That jackass just about ran over that kid! It's noon on Sunday - why is he flying down the bike path like that??"
Rider 2: "Dude, that's a pathlete."
