Thanks to IBoHunt for the cut and paste summary.

I went for a ride today after being off for a week and used Paisan's wipe your feet suggestion. Wow! I think that I have been pedaling cockeyed. Suddenly something clicked.

Or maybe it just was a sweet ride.

ha, good point ..... but in that case we all have similar issues. Maybe we should rename this sub-forum to the "lunatic riding association"

My pleasure.
As for Paisan's advice. Ride with him once. You can match his cadence easily. Just listen for the clicking

As for the sweet ride... reckon the foots no longer dodgy?

I still am avoiding walking and certainly am not running. But biking is working just fine.

Sorry, I should have added a smiley.

And no, I would never equate one of the Tudors with sanity.

Would that be an african swallow or a european swallow?

Maybe we should determine what it's optimum cadence should be to reach that airspeed velocity?

You will have to be more specific. There are 47(!) different species of African Swallows.
You first have to establish the frequency of wing beats and the amplitude of each wing beat. From that you could derive the speed in which the little critter flys...

Or you could do what the rest of the kids do these days -> Google

Now the bigger question is...

Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?

And by the way. That moving picture is a classic!
I'd even use one of the most over used adjectives ever... epic

We also have to take in to account that two may work together with a piece of string.
