So ... just for fun ... can anyone tell me the benefits of having well-developed upper body muscles for CYCLING?
Turns out my job (which involves a lot of heavy lifting and moving stuff) has given me the shoulders of a body-builder. I've been able to visibly see the difference lately, and then today I wore a suit jacket I haven't worn in about a year ... and could barely move my arms in it!! It used to fit very comfortably.
Now that I've got all this extra shoulder muscle, I'm running through ideas of what I can do with it when I get cycling outside again ... Let's see ...
1) Easily carry my panniers to the top floor of the hostel when I'm touring
2) Carry my bicycle over icy patches in the road
3) Hmmm ... maybe I can finally learn to bunny hop!!
OK ... anyone else with some benefits of having upper body muscle for cycling?
