But he fell off his bike, got hurt, and is in the hospital.

He’s not a cyclist. He just rides a bicycle.

Exactly what defines a cyclist? One who rides a bike every chance they get or one who is actively riding a bicycle? Is it the act of riding a bike? Is it the act of obsession of bikes or simply riding a bike? Or is this all folly, and boils down to what an individual labels themselves? Is it simply perception in the eyes of the individual? I am a cyclist, or I am a golfer, or I am a musician, etc. Does a person that engages in a certain activity really need a label?

At night, I AM a sleeper or asleep. Some day’s I can be pretty asleep too.

Believe we already had the, ‘what constitutes a cyclist thread’ earlier and it probably ended up in the usual dissention and disagreement and other dis-words but ended up with a hung jury.

Of course they do. How will we know if we like someone, if they don't have a label?

Let me see if I can get it done.

Lance Armstrong was framed and forced to confess by the government. Rim brakes are superior to ANY type of disc brake. And finally, Eddy Merckx PAID competing riders to let him win.

The lack of details has never slowed this forum from drawing conclusions before ...

I am so proud of you guys to go this long without resorting to the politics. So proud. Stunned, really. Despite that, I always knew you guys could do it. Unlike the rest of the mod team that was laying big odds that you guys couldn't go 5 posts before somebody screwed up. But NO, I believed in you guys, I knew you had the right stuff all along.

Kudos!

Trolling a potential bicyclist has a higher priority.

Perhaps, Jimi Hendrix asked it best: "Are you experienced?"
