A Cycling thread in FOO??????

Mrs Stormcrowe did a 50 miler today! After the ride we hit a CHinese Buffet........

2 hrs later, she was full! After lunch, she looked over and said if I can eat like that and LOSE weight, where has cycling been all my life! Right now she's getting ready to take a nap, she's pooped! I'm sure she'll be on later to do a ride report! One thing, though, she topped 30 mph on a DH! She loved it! I heard her screamoing on the way down the hill, thought she was terrified, caught up and she was having the time of her life! Matter of fact, she turned around, rode back up the hill and dropped down again!

Congrats on MRs. Stormcrowes ride!

As I reported recently...my younger brother was not sure he'd ever ride a road bike, but agreed to go on a ride with me not long ago. He should be on a 52 or 53cm bike and I ride a 56cm, but borrowing one of mine was all there was. About 4 miles in we stop and he's complaining that it feels kinda weird and he's not sure he likes it. At about mile 6 we hit a long straight downhill and get up in the high 30's. I look back and he's got a grin from ear to ear. He loved it after that and wants to buy a road bike before next spring now!
