That's it.

I'm going the other way. So. Is the grass really greener on the other side?

It all depends on how well the grass is maintained sis. If it is trimmed, watered, and fed on a regular basis, than it will be greener that that which is neglected.


Enjoy your Road Biking!

I never engaged in this kind of thing before
But yes I think it can be very easily done
We'll just put some bleachers out in the sun
And have it on Highway 61.

Right?

Enjoy your Road Biking!
but the conundrum is whether its worth the time and energy spent trimming watering and feeding

Nah, the grass just tastes different. Faster, but more delicate.

Come on over. It's fantastic. I have a female friend here who crosses back and forth daily. You can do it.

If you mean road biking, it's not better, but it's beautiful in it's own way.

I agree road biking is not necessarily better, just different. For me it works better with my schedule and lifestyle. And it doesn't beat up my body as bad as MTB does.

Yes, a nice green comfort road bike would be cool for you. Will it be a Kona?
