    I was pwned

    Did I spell that right?

    Commuting to work, a one-legged cyclist zips by me. And when I say zips, it was like I was standing still!! Zzoooommm....>>>

    Wow!!

    Quick thought...he probably doesn't stand up out of the saddle on steeper pitches, does he?

    Wonder if it was the guy who did breathless agony. There's a pic around somewhere I think.

    When riding with a guy that is doing all his cycling with one leg, you have no excuse for not finishing, when you have two good legs.

    The frame looks similar, but I think my guy was taller. Not sure, though. Happened too fast! Woooshh-->

    +1 for awesome-ess-ness.

    Find the video on youtube of the one-legged bicycle messenger in NYC. I think the video is called "Fast and Reliable", dude's name is Dexter (i forget his last name).

    I feel that way a lot when running. I'm dying, trying to convince myself not to stop and lie down when someone with no legs flies past me on prosthetics. Here I am whining to myself that I'm tired and I have two legs!

    I feel much shame.

    What do you call a bike racer that only shaves one leg? Scott!! He is a local racer who has trained with the olympic team. See him at the Rose bowl and on La Tuna canyon every once in a while when he is in town. Very strong rider.

    I too have been passed up, zoomed by, by a one legged rider. A humbling experience. For me it was on Live Oak (Arcadia area) back in the 90s, it was a different person than in the picture above.
