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

Hey Mr. @rjones28, have you ordered a Ti frame yet? Has the build / assembly begun yet? Are components coagulating as we speak? Er, type?

Did you hear how a ship carrying settled scientists traveling to Antarctica to demonstrate global warming got trapped by ice and it's now too icy and cold to rescue them? It's summer in Antarctica, BTW. Funnier than hell.

No doubt. He's tough. All the candyass comments about him are wrong.

His problem has been his pouting, yelling at teammates, fighting with coaches, and general disinterest with the Chicago media. He comes off as a big baby. And he throws too many picks in the red zone. Nonetheless, great signing today.

What were the chances two people on this thread would both stumble upon the same article about dog poop? It's astounding.
