    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!!!

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