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!!!

What's a "rasco". Weird anagram.
