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

Road Cycling Subforum Cliches

Just off of the top of my head are some of the most cliched memes from this particular subforum of BF. At one point these may have been clever and/or funny. Now they're overplayed and done-to-death. You think you might be clever for using one of the following words or sayings in a post, but be assured, you're not.

"Guads"
"OCP"
"Harden the F Up"
"Dialing Up to 400 Watts"

I'm sure I'm missing more than a few.
