Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I never actually liked the "Lightweight" lettering. They're just too 'five-seconds-in-MSWord'.

What if you ride an old green trike with a dog in it?
Does the OCP club send the swat team to my house and take me out ?
Do I have to cut my intestines out with my tanto for shaming bikeforums ?

No way; that is one heck of an OCP ride. Dogs wearing shades while riding, nothing could be cooler.

I use that pic of Bailey the chick magnet as my desktop wallpaper.

That's a sweet jersey.

But it would only validate the fact that "yes" I am a lightweight when it comes to cycling.
