Is cycling your favorite ride better than sex?

Notices
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

Is cycling your favorite ride better than sex?

For my lunch hour today I'm going for a ride to the top of Vail Pass because the twisty downhill back to work is fun and the weather is fabulous today. ...sex isn't an option for my lunch hour but if it were I wonder what I would choose to do.

No nooner? That's a shame. All that pineapple going to waste.

I've been very lucky that I've actually had a few of those zen moments while riding and so loved them. Both makes for an ideal day.

I've chosen to ride my bike instead of my girlfriend. And I'd do it again.

They're both awesome, though.

If done properly then the end result should be about the same...elevated hr, exhausted, and all energy completely spent!

nothings better than sex, but that being said. I agree with Goldfish that after a bike ride I'm ready for another ride. Riding makes me randy.

That's funny... I chose to ride my bike instead of your girlfriend too.

What a coincidence!

I can have sex nearly when ever I want. Having my favourite (non sexual) ride when ever I want?
Well that’s not even close in my dreams.
