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

Good lord, I have friends with face tattoos that make more sense than some of those.

I think scars from crashes are generally more worthwhile homages to the sport than most of those tattoos.

Rofl @ triple crank.

What a fred.

The Campagnolo Wings and Script are the only thing that should be on a cyclist's body, other than sweat.

What happens if the company sells out and starts producing crap?

After observing the fine artwork while frequenting many tattoo shops over the years, I'm surprised there isn't any "naked women on bicycle" tatoos.

I wear temporary tattoos on events ... usually Canadian flags when I'm doing an event in another country.

I rock a full Canadian National kit (Jersey, Socks, Bibs, Red/White Helmet) at every race.

Not mine, but I think it falls in the "tasteful" category.

I like the campy one, but is the softride one actually real? If so I feel sorry for the guy who has to live with that for the rest of his/her life. Same goes for the guy with the triple lol. I'm doing everything in my power to get rid of the triple on my roadbike just because it looks ********.

I love bikes and I love breasts, but I like to keep them separate.
