    HAH! You can eat a lot of cheap peanuts or a few great peanuts. Obviously, you did your own cost/benefit analysis. I can afford very few of the finest things in life but, I can buy the best peanuts. Jus' sayin'.........

    This ain't rocket science, my friend. Fresh boiled and just cooled down enough to eat is the ideal, but they are fine cold, too. Just pop the shell open with your fingers or teeth and let them roll into your mouth. When they are fresh and warm, the salty water will still be in the shell and makes it even better. Occasionally, there will be an immature peanut with a very soft shell and you can just eat the whole thing, shell and all.

    Georgia's peanut harvest is in the Fall, and that's the best time to get boiled peanuts. Florida peanuts have a bit wider harvest window. But they freeze well and can be quickly thawed and heated for an off season snack. The canned Peanut Patch boiled peanuts in the grocery stores are actually not too bad.

    Many people try to extend the boiled peanut season by using dried peanuts. They take forever to cook, they look and taste terrible. These are not the boiled peanuts you want.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    Sounds like the same way that you can get soybeans (edamame) in Japanese restaurants/bars.

    I like wearing my Man Capris/Pirate Style bike shorts. I enjoy my payday candy bars for a mid ride snack.

    I got ignored and "looks of distain" when I first started riding again. I had a 15 year old Hardtail and wore a Hockey Jersey for my winter cover. There was an older woman and 1 greyhound on a Cervelo who were friendly. All the rest of the Latex Lizards were colder than a brass toilet seat in a Nebraska Winter. It created a fire in me. I would be as good as them as soon as I could and I would encourage every rider climbing Horizon Ridge. I chuckle to myself when I see some of the newbies, but I'm proud of them all.

    Many people in any group, sometimes even the majority, take awhile to embrace new comers. I, personally fall into that group. We're not being standoffish on purpose, we just don't know what to say to new acquaintances. When we start needling you about your choice of mid ride snacks you know you're making headway.

    Recumbent, baggies, disdain for designer cycling food... please tell me you have a beard and hairy legs. Bits of peanut shell snagged in said hair would complete the image.

    Now me, I like to munch on Rice Crispy Treats when I pedal my hairy legged and faced self around on my recumbent. Lycra though, strictly lycra. So I'm cool.

    Retro Grouch does not shave his legs. Never has, never will.
    Retro's beard is rather subtle - just a button of a goatee that I keep trimmed quite short with the clipper. My little sister told me I should get rid of it so now I have no choice and can never shave it.

    The purpose of shaving your legs is not so much for aerodynamics but so the doctor can work on them if you crash.

    I want to shave my legs, but I'm reluctant because I'm afraid someone would laugh at a bent rider with shaved legs. But dang, it would accentuate my fine toned body.....

    Well then as George Mount used to say: "So the doctors can work on them and because the guys like the way it makes them look".

    If you shave your legs we're going to laugh at you. But then we're going to laugh at you if you don't shave your legs too. So why we laugh at you is totally under your control.

    I was kind of hoping I'd get a real good-looking girl to shave my legs before the doctor works on them. When it actually happened, however, I was out so I don't know what the person who shaved my leg looked like. The best words I heard that day were "We'll put you to sleep before moving you onto the operating table."

    If your post has only upper case letters, the forum helpfully decides to make them all lower case.

    If hit edit your post now, you'll get it to work.
