Okay, someone asked for a poll on what percent of the forum would classify yourself as a "recreational cyclist."
So, I am going to start a poll on that subject.
HINT: IF YOU WERE ONLY ALLOWED TO DO ONE, WHICH WOULD IT BE?
1. Recreational Cyclist - one whose primary interest is bicycling for fun; one who takes a relaxed approach to cycling; one who cherishes family cycling, if there is a family involved; one who might see the value of good bike paths and enjoy them; one who might like to brag about a 10 mile ride!
one who probably is not proficient at fixing, building and repairing his bike; one who is not into intense training mostly for the training; ; one who is not, primarily: a commuter, a tourer, a BMX'er; a cyclocross'er; a single/fixed speeder. one who is not into a serious racing, competitive type of mtn biking.
So, choose the categories which BEST describes you. (More than one category allowed)
