You don't want to know. Especially with all that streched lycra.

Dnvrf(x), I've always thought of you as functional.

IS that legal

HI,
I was at my favorite LBS and we were chatting pre ride coffee, water,energy doughnuts and such and the owner looked at one of the male riders and said those lycra pants are going to get you arrested ! this for some reason busted up the whole group some ladies also most were laughing a bit.. Its funny how you accept skin tight lycra pants as the normal pre-ride attire/ so its ok right?

Four folks have said that I was "butt-ugly."

That definitely is an upgrade in my "handsome status." Thanks, all.

Gosh, I can't wait for the weather to get better (for most of us, that is). Maybe some serious miles will cure all of this.

Best looking 50+er and, as far as I know, the only people listed are male. None of them meet my first criteria.

I am thankful that the image was small. I think the PB's quads are a little underdeveloped to be an real participant in the Mr. 50+ contest.
