Who would be your ideal riding partner?

I'd choose Seven of Nine from Star Trek. You work out why.

There is a big advantage as well. If you bugger up your rear derailleur, she keeps a spare on her face. Neat, eh?

Who's yours?

Any other cycling drummer: Neil Peart, Manu Katche, someone like that.
Or Boo Radley from To Kill A Mockingbird.

Boo Radley was my first choice also but to be different I'll take Big Foot. The smell is not so great but you can sit in his draft and work at 30% at 35 mph. He's also a chick magnet.

Y.T. from Neil Stephenson's Snow Crash; why? Magna-poon[1]. That, and Liquid Knuckles.

[1] For those that have never read the book, Y.T. is a RadiKS Kourier. Kind of like a Courier, except they ride nastily high-tech skateboards through traffic, latching on to the cars with magnetic "harpoons", using the rushing traffic to tow them around.

Hmm, forget Y.T. =) Chevette Washington from William Gibson's Virtual Light. She's a S.F. bicycle courier.

dirtbikedude,

Is that spiked punk hair or are you wearing a WWII German war helmut.

It's just you average flat top cut. What you assume is a spike is just a freak of nature

No one. I really prefer riding on my own. I don't like talking I just wanna ride. Same in the Gym.

I suppose myself. Then the competition would be totally equal. I hate smoking people and/or being smoked.

That would be quite a commute from Utah, though.
