incorrect.

although if the roles had been reversed, i'm pretty sure the schmuck who put his foot into my front wheel would have done a face plant.

...come on botto....

1. Make up my mind for me on my ride today. The sun is out and it's 72 degrees...light wind. What's it gonna be? Ride to the lake and then cut the grass or drive to the lake, cut the grass and THEN ride out in the country?

2. Why would a guy stick his foot into your wheel?
Accident=lame
Breaking Away-like=now we've got a story

Okay....I'm heading to the cycling room to change for the ride to the lake. When I get back here I expect some details....somebody didn't keep the rubber side down in this deal!
I have to know before I head off on the ride out of town.

Do people race for clubs/teams in these races or is it mainly unattached folks?
