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

OK I can take a hint

OK I can take a hint

When BF member Todd Ostenberg actually mails me a pair of cycling socks, it may be time to abandon my patented (what else) crew sock look. Thanks Todd. In the meantime you BF Stalkers keep that Bike Schwag coming. If anyone is thinking of sending me a new 2009 D.A. Group, feel free to do so. You can even use my Fedex Acct. #. That's the kind of guy I am.

Actually I purchased half a dozen pair of high quality cycling socks from the Livestrong mail order site, and wear them daily. But Todd sent me blue socks which will match my GL team kit. Well done T. O.

Check 'em under a black light first. Remember how much some members love you.

Pcad, some of us read your blog here mainly because you can't take a hint.

Would you like my ~70 - 80% worn tires and unpatched punctured tubes?

I'm just too lazy & wasteful to be bothered risking additional flats or patching tubes.

Ah yes, the only thing better than crushing souls in person is virtual soul crushing

Hell yeah. I just hate the idea of shipping them. I'd patch the hell out of a load of tubes though.

Everyone's afraid you would sale anything they sent you off so you could invest in more entry fees to crush souls on your ferrous rocket. And no one wants to support your soul-crushing habit.

[thread hijack -- but then can you really hijack a Pcad thread?]

WR -- my wife found one of these on clearance and picked it up for son's upcoming birthday. Made me think of you:

Ovoleg posts a picture of him riding in ripped shorts and people buy him a new pair. Pcad posts a pic of him and his tube socks and people send him cycling socks. I'm going to post a picture of me riding without a bike!

Pcaddy-

You gotta tell the BFers the message on the socks. Remember, pics or it didn't happen.

you should do it the other way around. post a pick of you riding with no clothing on, no kit, no shoes, no nothing.

you're bound to get a full wardrobe for every season

That looks really cool. You are going to have a blast with that. I mean your son will...

Ugh, tonight, my oldest (6 yo) wasn't listening, and I kept my word on his punishment: I completely disassembled his Lego Slave 1. Holy crap, I think it hurt me more than him. At least he cried more than I did.

Insult to injury: the instructions are missing!!!
