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!!!

Chris

Racso (Oscar; Orguasch): I know you like Chris L. (who doesn't, he's a wild man), but "Christ?" Not quite.

25 pounds (to the person who keeps asking "how much weight have you lost?)
15 miles (to the person who wants to know how far I have to ride)
65 minutes (to the person who asks how long it takes)
"Yes" (to the person who asks "Did you ride in today?"
"Good for you" (to the one who tells me they I inspired them to take up cycling, too)
