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

In an act clearly designed to send a message to his wife Leonna, Bob finds new uses for some of her many shoes.

This new airless puncture proof tire system is great, but washing all these socks after every ride is getting a little old.

Just starting out, and strapped for funds, Bob had to choose: helmet, or cycling shoes.

Zipps latest development in "kick @$$" wheels was halted when members of bikeforums complained that they had "too much rotational mass"

They looked at me like I was an idiot for buying 6 pairs shoes at one time. But I proved them!
