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 never Strava'd anything. I have a bunch of watches but they all need their batteries replaced. I like wearing one though because it looks like not only do I have somewhere to be, I intend to be there somewhere near the appointed time. My kid said she'd pick out a watch for me that just suited me. (She was about 10). I went ahead and bought it but it's got a face the size you'd find on a man's watch surrounded by rhinestones and it's anodized purple. I said "Great! My kid thinks I'm secretly a pimp." It does look excellent with an otherwise neutral colored outfit though.

All of you need to respect your elders. I was posting on here and riding road when most of you were still riding BMX bikes.
