Glad to have stumbled across this thread..I was searching for Forums on Cycling..seems aside from my full-time job as a drummer/steeldrummer.. cycling has always held an important part of my Natural Mental Therapy. I grew up in Brooklyn, NYC but moved around a bit. lived in Malaysia, Tokyo and Italy for a while. Fondest riding memories has to be "hands down " riding from my apt in N Italy into Dolomites..spectacular and people tend to encourage you to ride strong..unlike in NY where they want to run you over..in any event Im hoping to connect with like minded souls whose solace is being out on the open road or in a quiet trail..
Hey there.. WELCOME !! I read you, though I must disagree.. I find that only the svachimes tried to mow me down in NYC. , overall at least they're alert. I'd thought you'd typed Fondriest, I can see now that you wrote "fondest". CIAO amiche
I confer to agree with your disagreement. NYC is un altra cosa.. but I live now on Eastern LI .. some really nice roads designated for street sharing with cyclists.. alongside, farms, vineyards and the like..out here seems most automobile drivers are a bit distressed by the fact you are riding Midday ( since im an underemployed musician) and looking alot slimmer than their hard working hubbies with protruding bellies..
maybe its because we are not spending anything on petrol?.. hmm..
