Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

yeah, you're just being a snob. After all, a helmet might not allow for the camera to get his good angle, and sleeves would cover up the tats.

Who cares? I ride in tank tops sometimes, and I ride helmetless if I am on a bike path or something similar. People here spend to much time caring what other people do.

If anything, the all white outfit should be criminal...sheesh haha

Maybe he's just trying to make sure he wears white before Labor Day comes along.

And ..... toe clips

Here's a pic of hunky David Beckham getting in shape for his stint with the L.A. Galaxy.

The soccer stud was seen swishing through the south of France, where he's vacationing with supershopper wife Posh and their three little Becks.

When you see this, don't you just want to hop on and ride?


I'm sorry, but I'm still trying to fathom that last statement ...

Excuse me, ma'am, but I do believe the terms you're looking for are "kicks" or "dunks."

Oops. I should learn to read the rest of the posts.

Maybe he'll bring his bike out here.
