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've been training so hard for the Phenom's return that I hurt myself. So I'm on the 15 day DL.

Ryanf has imposed a period of silence during his absence to focus on mashing our huge guads.

With Ryanf temporarily off the team, Cypress, there's a GC spot open. It's between you and KP.

Im considering dropping out of the team unless the leader makes me a better offer.

I walked into gabby the other day ( bf chat's room) and before I could indentify myself ( I was gabber 404) the leader addressed me and asked "hey, do you want to see some porn"
He then proceeded into sending me a link to a giant... GIANT..

Bike!!!

oh my guad!


(btw, true story )

I'll pass. I dare not play the Skeletor to his He-man. His guads are just too massive.

The young phenom has unexpectidly taken a necessary change from his "mashing" style to a more Lance inspired style of spinning due to the Jr. gears he will be running in his 17 mile road race on June 10th. Which coincidentaly coincides with his glorious return to his beloved Bike Forums.

In Ryan's absence, I've been riding the fixie. I took it to LA (lower Alabama) and rode chipseal and dirt roads all weekend. Flying down a hill at 30mph only to hit sand while riding a fixed gear is tough. But if it makes my guads as big as those of Cypress, it will have been worth it.

My guads have gotten so massive since his exile that I'm sure he'll make a spot on the team for me. I'm not so sure he'll be as impressed with my galves.

I'm not even on the team, but I crashed anyway. For honor. I'd post pics, but I'm lazy. You can imagine it though. It looks like a big red area on my ass.

I heard that Team Ryanf is off the tour this year due to an epidemic of broken toes suffered during hamer droping drills.

It looks like Team RyanF is decimated! Maybe I can scoop up a spot on the roster. I will head out tomorrow at first light on a 53x13 fixie and mash until dusk. I will drope hammers until my guads are gigantical.

I glued $5 bills all over my guads when I went out hammer droping the other night. I'm not on the team, since I'm just a spiner.

Don't worry. Every team needs a spinner.
