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

Carrot juice + coco water = surprisingly good

Far better than either one on its own

I can see patches of lawn now. Soggy lawn from snow melt. But it's a start.

Man behaves dickishly towards a woman. someone shuts him up (preferably the woman herself but possibly over-hearing males), conversation goes on. Instead of man behaves dickishly, woman to whom he behaved dickishly is told to take herself and any women she wanted to talk to the ladies room to continue their conversation.

But whatever, it's not my forum. And now my curiosity is piqued. But in general I don't thnk treating women cyclists as if they are something substantially different than male cyclists is a good idea. We're all just cyclists IMO. Sure with differing interests, agendas, physiologies, etc. But fundamentally just cyclists.
i'm generally in agreement with you. especially that we're all cyclists.

depending on the community, the methods you describe of handling the dickish behavior are sometimes more, and sometimes less successful. sometimes it nice to not have to expend the energy wading through noise. that all said, i've found very little need to use the women's forum here.

Oil wrestling was my favorite, BITD when I was young and wild and attended such events.

Seriously? I'm sitting right here. *shaking head* Although I was starting to doubt the veracity of all those hours-long bike rides even *with* photographic evidence to back up his story.

Bike riding, watching oil wrestling, same thing pretty much.

Don't mix golf in, though. Tough to hold on to your club.

Time for the Big Dance.

I figure I'll sport SU colors until they let me down. Again. Then I'll find someone else to pull for.

I'm not rabidly committed to anyone in particular this year.

Looking at the Walmart dress code online is cracking me up. I was told to show up to orientation on Tuesday dressed according to the dress code. That means any shade of brown pants and a shirt "anywhere along the range from royal blue to navy blue." (Someone online described the pants requirement as "lite brown to lite tan" and "Khaki as long as it's a form of brown not green". I once got talked to at Target because my grayish-brown cargo pants were "Okay for today but from now on stick closer to khaki".) This is going to be interesting because two Sundays ago I was getting dressed and decided what I really needed to go with tiger-striped Vans, jeans, and a black T-shirt was the blue and white tutu I bought at a thrift store last fall. Obviously, this isn't something I'd wear to work or even a great many places around town but it's such a contrast to what I'm supposed to wear during working hours that it's funny. Oh, and I originally bought the tutus to wear over bike shorts because I'd seen so few women wearing skirts on mountain bikes and because if you're going to be on a bike and feel like a kid then why not go all out now and then?

I'm not the best person to ask. We were watching mens' Greco-Roman wrestling during the Olympics some years back and my daughter threatened to ban me from the room just because I said things like "How well do these guys know each other? What's the backstory here?" and "Holy crap! Doesn't this thing have a soundtrack?"

i'm having a similar work wardrobe conundrum. i didn't ask, but i may end up having to buy a bunch of branded shirts. based on observation, it looked like it was somewhat split, as far as official branded stuff and just plain clothes. definitely super casual. like, jeans and t-shirts casual. for some reason i was expecting a uniform, or slightly more dressed up, if only to tell apart the staff from customers.
