too sexy for my jersey

Recently my girlfriend said that I look cute in a jersey, and i've "lost my tush" due to bicycling. Does anyone else experience this secondary benefit from cycling?

Well, I've always been as skinny as a rake, so it didn't make a huge amount of difference in that area, save for giving my legs better muscle definition. No girlfriend yet here either, unless A. Troll counts.

As long as you never refer to your girlfriends as bikes you'll be OK.

That's where I've been going wrong.

My wife keeps commenting on how thin I look (I've lost 15 lbs since I started biking last Thanksgiving).

Yesterday, we were walking behind an older gentleman in bike clothes, and my wife commented "that's what I want you to look like in your retirement" - because he had no butt, and was very thin (I asked "what about the bow legs?" ). Turns out he's training for a 480-mile, 6-day, 6-stage Around the Bay ride in a few weeks.

And why would I not count?

I think I count for a lot, darlin'.

I may only be 5 inches tall, but it's five inches of dynamite.

And don't you forget it, boyfriend.

By the way, nice quads!

lol, i have only gained weight from cycling.. and i figure that i can accept that looking at my legs. Before i started cycling i thought i had nice legs... i was wrong. The last girl i was with said that she loved my legs..... but as i said that was the last one. I think I'll always have my "black beauty" (my allez).

on a back note, i dont mind looking at the women riders from the back well at least not the one i ride with currently

Careful Trollie, I might hold you to that one day! Especially since I didn't get the number of that masseuse in Ipswich last Sunday (I knew there was a reason that place existed!).

I never refer to my bikes as girlfriends. No girl or woman has "taken me to the places" my bikes have.

Well, boyfriend, you should probably know that I am BikeForums's resident troll. I am a five-inch tall fuschia haired cycling goddess, a pretty good amateur mechanic, a full time girlfriend, an admirer of good legs and a real doll.

Wanna be my boyfriend?

Only five inches tall, F*R, but all woman, I assure you.

Well, my current ride is an older GT I-drive, but I'm looking for a good road bike? Does Bianchi make any 3 or 4 cm frames? I like potatoes, too!

6'0" and 176 lbs., not much of it is fat right now. I ride the prom queen (Colnago) and the beast (my 29'er). If your gonna ride 'em all, some of them are gonna be prettier than others.

And now for something completely different (and very strange): On June 12, 2004, cyclists in Vancouver, London, San Francisco, Chicago, Apeldoorn, Montreal, among a number of other cities, will be riding naked to protest against oil dependency and, according to organisers, "celebrate the power and individuality of our bodies."

In what is being hailed as "the world's largest naked event since the dawn of the textile industry", the organisation's message is one of simplification, human harmony and love. "For a future to exist for tomorrows generations, we have to stop wasting the life blood energy of the Earth, stop fighting and killing in the name of consumerist wealth accumulation and learn to love and respect all life on this planet."
For more information, go to: www.worldnakedbikeride.org.



Uh I didn't write that......
