    Cycling explained

    This has some profanity, but is funny.

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    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.

    I have had this conversation. I'm more like the guy on the left.

    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    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?

    I like both of them.

    When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. Arthur Conan Doyle

    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.
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.
