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 that an old picture of Flandis riding in Pennsylvania dutch country when he wasn't allowed to wear spandex? Or use tires? Looks kinda like it.

Bob looks around self-consciously, hoping nobody notices his stupid Fred rack.

It was simple arithmetic. With another 6 pairs of shoes, Joe figured he could go 6 times faster.

But upon getting back home and looking at the ad again, he found it did in fact say "Shoemano wheels".
