What do we all look like?

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

What do we all look like?

You look more like a computer geek than a bike thief That cop deserves a ****punch.

Who's taking your photos? Are you wearing cotton socks while riding?

I'll see if I can get some photos taken.

You should come to CO this summer.

I only have pics of me related to a bike in BMX racing gear. I'm afraid to take a picture with my road bike, cause I'm fat and I don't shave my legs!

Here's me.

I lost alot of weight in the last year. About 40#. I have been trying to stay out of the sun, because I was told that it is bad for my ivory skin. My wife got me some really great shampoo made by American crew, it apparently makes your hair grow back for those of us gents with receding hairlines.

I have had alot of compliments from the ladies. My wife is getting concerned I may may start looking elsewhere. But, I told her, no matter how good looking I am now, I would never leave her. Ladies, please, try to refrain from ooooo-ing and aahhhhh-ing too much. Mainly cuz of all the sexual harassment lawsuits and such now-a-days.

Some people say I should do movies, but I can't really act, so I'll stick to cycling, thank you.
