This is for all of the so-called normal people out there:
I am a cyclist plain and simple!
I am NOT obsessive about my weight (not that I need to be).
I am NOT specifically training for some kind of event.
I am NOT "one of those environmental freaks" (although this is a definite side benefit of what I do).
My life is NOT in immediate danger because of what I do.
I will NOT catch some kind of strange unpronounceable disease because I went riding in the rain.
No, I do NOT want to buy your cheap, second-hand, heap of sh*t car.
No, the hills do NOT hurt me.
No, the fact that I enjoy riding hills does NOT mean that I have some kind of strange sexual fetish.
Yes, I DO enjoy riding over 150km in a day
No, the fact that I wear lycra on the aforementioned rides does NOT bring my masculinity into question.
In short, I enjoy riding a bike, is that such a difficult concept? Get over it and/or f*** off!!!
