    Cycling good for fidelity?

    I tend to ride on the "corners" of my drop bars a lot, and I have a habit of letting the front part of the curve fall between my middle and ring finger (sort of like the Vulcan salute). Probably not too good for your hands, except I'm set up well enough that I don't rest a lot of weight on my hands.

    Anyway, I've gotten a big callus on the side of my ring finger, just above the wedding ring that makes it almost impossible to remove the ring. So I'm stuck with it. No more slipping it off while mowing the lawn to remove the visible tan lines. No more hanging around singles bars looking for a quick score. No more flinging it in the spouse's general direction during an argument.

    Not that I ever did any of those things before, but hey, a guy's allowed an occasional fantasy.

    Sorry for the bad sketches...drawing with a mouse isn't the best.

    Anyone else find that riding helps keep them on the straight and narrow?

    I do almost all my riding with the club. SWMBO's best friend and her husband both ride with the club so I have to behave or Linda will rat me out. Of course, being 55 years old, fat, and balding kinda preempts the opportunity for too many illicit trysts anyway.

    I would think that a ring would make a middle-aged guy for attractive for a 'fling'.

    I'm one of "those" riders that wears gloves so nobody can see my wedding ring. Even worse, my OCP mojo is all screwed up; Orbea bike with Rabobank helmet, Phonak cap, Descente shorts, and Team Jelly Belly jersey; no hotties will give me the time of day. On the "Post a Pic of yourself" thread I got no compliments; didn't hear any shrieks of pain, either so I'll call it a draw.

    I got a callus like that one day, on my thumb from working with a drill all day. It hurt pretty bad.

    I think that famous thread (now removed) was before Siu's time. But your point is well taken!

    It was before my time too, but it had been resurrected one last time before it was sent the way of the "Sig Test - Do Not Reply" thread.
