    Where else but on the BBC can you watch a documentary that has a guy casually mentioning anally fisting an elephant, getting smacked in the face with its 3.5' cock and ended up w/a black eye?

    Btw, "The Elephant's Guide to Sex" <-- bittorrent ftw

    Drivers won't mess with you, but I'd hate to have a cop accuse me of impersonating them. That said, unless you have a moustache and a beer belly, can you really be impersonating a cop?

    I have a "Trail Hogs" t-shirt which is the Metro Police Mountain bike racing team. It has "POLICE' in huge letters across the back of it. On top of always getting a wide berth when wearing it I have never had a single cop question me on it...although I have gotten a few waves from our diligent boys in blue. I think you have to actually identify yourself verbally as police to be charged with impersonation...but then again I am not a lawyer.

    Owies. I went down about 20 metres from my house. The SUV in front of me started fishtailing crazily towards a stop sign and I panicked and locked up my back wheel and tried to turn at the same time. The lady got out and asked if I was okay. Then we proceeded past the stop sign and I saw an ambulance and paramedics putting a cyclist in a gurney. I guess he went down at the same spot as me, just worse. The one little patch of road was like an ice rink!

    How about putting "support your local" in 1/4 high letters...and "POLICE" in 6 inch high letters. Nothing wrong with a little support.

    Ha! I had that shirt too but I gave it to the goodwill 'cause apparently I'm not big enough to be a cop (or I just needed a smaller size)

    I like the police jacket/shirt/patch or whatever idea though. If the cops question you on it just do your best stoner "the band dude!"

    Shiz, clipless sandals rock. Here's my $0.02 as cobbled from my own experience and some reading I've done. The newer three strap shimano's are apparently not as good as the older two strap versions. The Lake (what I had) lasted about two years of heavy use before a strap blew out. I've still got them in case I can figure out how to repair them. Very easy to walk/light hike in, but probably not stable enough for loaded hiking. The Lakes use the same sole as the Shimano's. The Nashbar house brand soles are apparently stiffer than the Lake and will probably be my next purchase. I did find the Lakes were a little lacking in stiffness, but I expect that's a trade off with walk-ability. Downsides compared to a shoe is you get less "pull up" power, soles aren't as stiff as shoes, and not safe for riding through brush etc. Upsides are extremely comfortable and generally more versatile for walking around and tend to dry faster than a shoe. Odour is about the same as a shoe or Teva.

    For combos, cold weather is polypro sox, wool sox, neoprene socks and occasionally a wind breaking nylon or another neoprene booty overtop. You can likely get a way with the three layers for three seasonand in warm weather go au naturale (don't forget sunscreen on your feet). Largest sizes for the Shimano's and Nashbar's is 45/46 with the Lakes going up to 47/48. I'm probably going to order a Nashbar set in the next week or so; they're on sale for $39.99 USD (Lake's are similarly on sale and I'm seriously considering buying a set of both). I wish I'd bought two pair when I got the Lake's when MEC was dumping them

    Thanks for the great info cam. I think I'm going to pick up a pair of the nashbar sandals, as they are 40USD and there is a 10% off coupon at the moment. They seem better than the lakes based on the fact that they are (reportedly) stiffer, cheaper, and have deeper lugs to protect the cleat. I'm picking up the biggest pair so I hope they will fit well. At least nashbar has a good return policy. If I get a pair before you do I'll bring them over for you to check em out.

    I saw the SPD sandals on my bike trip last summer. They seemed pretty cool, but the first time I saw them I couldn't figure them out "she's wearing sandals...but she's clipped in...I'm confused"

    You may want to consider the Cannondale Roam for touring. I used 'em for thousands of kilometers last summer and they're basically perfect for cycletouring. They are also available in larger sizes, up to 14, which I wear and they were the biggest I could find. The fit is a lil' snug, so you may want to go up a size to be safe. Nashbar will also take them back no questions asked if they don't fit well and haven't been used. The Roams are quite stiff in the lower sole and heel, but flexible enough in the middle to make them great for hiking along with the aggressive sole cleats. They also breath well and can be washed easily, and are fairly durable. I used SPDs with them, which I thought were ideal - the Nashbar clones are pretty good I hear and you can't go wrong for $17. Waterproof shoe covers are essential too; riding for hours with soaked shoes is awful.

    I think the smallest/lightest and most versatile solution for me is to get SPD sandals, and then bring some light trail running shoes. If I'm going for a hike I'd like proper walking shoes, and if I'm just louging around camp I'm not really a fan of flip flops and would rather go barefoot or put on the walking shoes or SPD sandals. Also I'd rather not have laces on a cycling shoe, but thanks for the suggestion nonetheless.
