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

What would you do without Bike Forums?

What would you do when you were bored at work?
Or know what bike to buy?
How would you know what tires/wheels to buy for your bike?
Or know how fast is fast?
Or how much you should ride? Or when? Or how far?



What else?

There are a couple of other forums, including one for the exiles of BF (banned, or fed up ex-BF members), that don't have much traffic.

Or you can always play with yourself.

visit XXX websites more frequently.








say what you want, but that franchise would have been better if Vin Diesel were cast in all of the films.
still great cinema though, and the message boards always have interesting perspectives on the subplot(s) of XXX. ice cube was ok, imo.

"clean the house"
"mow the lawn"
"bathe"
"feed the kid"
etc.

ever bathe while you feed the kid? two birds, one stone.

I'd be working in my last profession still and most likely doing very well financially. Instead I have been reduced to pedaling (see what I did there) bike parts for a living.....


....still not sure if that is a good or bad thing. I'll get back to you.
