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

Also paying member and his comments are nothing compared to many of the idiotic sutpid comments posted by non paying members/ people here that are supposed to be adults.

There are more people here that should hand over their "adult cards" before he hands over his "mod card"!

I'm payed so I can stay!

yeah, but cops are held to higher standards of conduct than petty criminals, and we can't take away "adult cards"

Couldn't we just strap him (her) to the yardarm for a flogging and be done with it?

What did the onion-eyed whippersnapper do anyway?
