    Excellent...nice to see someone else not afraid to post on the subject matter of Christianity...it looks like the prime focus for Trinity Sports Group is Road Riding.

    Here is a Mountain Biking Specific Christian org for any MTB'ers that are interested...

    Believers On Mountain Bikes

    He'd be riding whatever type of bike he needed to at the time to catch your particular interest...he might even flat or break something on purpose to get you to stop and open up some conversation. For that matter...he might go sailing over the handlebars, landing on his face to get you to stop spend a little time with Him...

    I don't know what God rides but I think he builds Colnagos.

    Seriously though, nice to see that some folks are bringing together their religion and their favorite hobby. I coached Track and Field at a Christian high school for years and loved the way that sport could be used as a form of worship.

    I thought about joining a Christian cycling organization, but decided to follow Chunk 666

    http://www.dclxvi.org/chunk/

    Their Mandate:
    We are a bicycle club and temperance league. We are a wandering klezmer band working to hasten the heat death of the universe. We have stolen more children than the Romany and lost more fingers than Django Reinhardt. Most importantly, we are believers in the use of muscle-powered steeds, which augment the physiology of their riders. After the imminent Apocalypse, gasoline and bullets will be rare. Those who already ride bicycles and shoot bb guns and slingshots today will easily dominate the huddled masses tomorrow. The laws of physics will change as well. Bicycles that are ridable now will be unridable in the future, while our apparently foolish machines lay waste to the world.

    Personally, I don't think I would follow ole chuckie to far. Something about the blind leading the blind.

    Is this site a look at what happens when kids outgrow Dungeons and Dragons, get some souped-up bikes, and learn to create a website?

    Did a 40 year old create this site in the basement of his parents house, where he still lives?

    And how in the heck did you find it?

    If they can find a way to work Django in to their mandate they can count me in. Does that funny birthmark on my scalp make me the official leader?

    He usually rides a lot with me on my Kojima road bike but recently spent a lot of time with my Giant MTB during my trip to India. ... And let me say that I'm ever so thankful that He did.

    If you want to see another example of mixing faith and cycling check out bfb2003's website.

    I am sure he would ride an old cruiser with extended forks, ape hanger handle bars, a banana seat with a five-foot sissy bar. He would really look cool with his long unkempt hair flown in the breeze and his sandaled feet on the block pedals. I mean no one would take him seriously on a unicycle or a full suspension MTB.

    Thanks for posting the links. For the past several years, I've been trying to find ways to meld my occupation (psychologist), my Christian faith, and my love of cycling.

    Thanks again!

    It's more a case of asking them if they're ready to meet their maker - and then telling them that if they do that again you'll help them find out.

    Sorry you feel that way. That is certainly not my experience or I'm sure the experience of many others.

    I would suggest that it's probably bad form to insult a large section of the Bikeforums community just because you disagree with their beliefs.

    I respect your right to disbelieve and simply ask that you respect my right, and the rights of many others here, to believe.

    If you feel so strongly I would think that the title of the thread should have given you enough warning that this is a discussion you could simply ignore.

    And would it work on water?

    Could he turn a Huffy into a Bianchi?
    Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.

    IMHO, this is exactly what is wrong with "religious" people today-just this sort of pointless drivel (or others, such as "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin"), assumes that:

    a) there is any reason to expect that he would be doing something as banal as this, and

    b) assuming that you are important/worthy/holy enough to have the (one and only) right answer to this pointless question.

    BTW, paramount, well said!

    I will now attempt to calm myself....

    Oooohmmmmm....mani padme huuummm.........

    I think somewhere my subtle British irony got lost. I'm not a fan of religion either.

    We used to have the expression "Christ on a bike!" for something unbelievable and I remember a T shirt on sale a little while ago that says it all "Jesus loves you, but I'm his favourite"
