Cycling explained

This has some profanity, but is funny.

NSFW. It is very funny.

When I'm seriously bored, I go to YouTube and watch the Xtranormal videos. I'm amazed at the wit of our peers.

What would be worse, though, would be to be like the guy on the right, getting left 20 miles behind the guy on the left. Not me though, oh no, not like any of us here, oh no, not me

Did I say, 'not me' enough?

Yup very funny. But the sad truth is a good percentage of the fully kitted roadies think and talk just the way the guy in the cartoon does. There are only a few hundred professional cyclist in the whole world of 7 billion people that should anywhere approach anything like that.

BTW I ride a recumbent and have nothing to do with pain and girley spandex shorts. Spandex is simply not necessary on a bent.

I am NOT a "cycler" I am a bicyclist since I ride for fun not to torture myself while throwing huge gobs of money away on weight weenie cycling stuff!

GOD! That video is so true!!! No wonder most people think all bicycle riders are crazy.
