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

I don't get it. Even worse, I don't think Sheldon Brown will get it. Sheldon, do you get it?





Oh hey... a bunny with a double stack on his head. Now I get that...

It's only a waste of time if you make it a waste of time. Have you ever seen a bunny with a double-stack on his head? Now we both have.

Yeah....I figured I'd kick it up a notch, since I've only seen a bunny with one pancake on its' head before.

That would qualify as an 'oh snap' if the Eagles didn't just get two picks on Sunday, and get back into the playoff picture.

This thread perplexes me.
Also, what is with the gentleman in tight green pants and a helmet? I wonder if he is called a certain 3 letter word while practicing whatever sport he seems to be playing.
