What the ??? Just looked and there were 388 people viewing road cycling on a Monday afternoon, where much of the country is experiencing very sunny Spring like weather. Hmmmmmmm, so many dreaming of being out on the road, yet they are chained to their desk, SUV and home mortgage.

Very interesting considering the next highest number i saw as like 182 in the Single Speed forum. (that too is perplexing) I think Spring fever has officially hit the cycling community. It was interesting to see an unusual amount of people out exercising this morning, since temps were very spring like for the first time.

I kept thinking, "where have all of you people been all winter?" It has been so peaceful to be virtually the only person out riding all winter. Now I guess all the black bear hybernating cyclists can come out and join us polar bears.

We 388 are at work, viewing the forum because if we were out riding, we would all be unemployed. Road cyclng, thanks to Lance is very popular now. So it should not be suprising that more people are lurking the road forum. I don't know what result you would find, but compare that with a Saturday afternoon. Many Monday lurkes are Satruday riders. The Saturday lurkers are still looking for bikes perhaps.

BTW rainy, flood conditions in New Jersey today.

The "Road Forum"is ok, but I really like the "General Cycling Forum." It's full of odd, interesting and quirky characters who don't take themselves or cycling too seriously. My kind of people.

I have also noticed a big jump in the numbers recently. It has got to be the spring fever!

Yesterday's numbers had more to do with Bobby.
