About cycling that is. I was having a "discussion" with a friend about my "cycling obsession", which includes riding thousands of miles a year, reading anything cycling related, watching any cycling event I can, reading and posting here, etc. You get the point. In any event, he wanted to know what good all of this did, that is besides the riding. I told him I'm always learning something new. He says, "like what", in a not too friendly tone. The first thing that jumped into my mind as a retort was, "That chocolate milk is a highly effective (as effective as most sports drinks) at helping with recovery after hard rides."
So, am I alone here, or do you continue to learn new things after years of riding? What have you learned this year that was new to you?
PS - I'm gonna drag my smart***** friend to the computer and make him read this thread. He really drives me nuts with his judgments, especially because he's a golfer and reads more golf stuff than you can shake a putter at.
