YAY,

We have our 2 kids. no more planned. Bring on the cycling!!!

But wait, I was a cyclist and father'd 2 kids. And we didn't have to work that hard. Much to my disappointment.

I'm no expert, but I'll say this much:

-improper fit on a bike = pain in all the wrong places. The article seems to cover that.

-"Padded" saddles? A saddle doesn't need gel padding if you size it up right with your sitbones over it. Oh wait, the article mentions "too much padding" as well.

-Overall, this article doesn't look as bad as the ones so adamantly anti-cycling, but it still comes off sounding pretty stupid.

Whenever this thread thrusts its head up, we found out how few people know the actual precise definition of the term "impotence". It seems that riding a bike also has a negative effect on the ability to use language accurately.
