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 the cycling universe that exists in my mind, I am the champion. I'm starting to suspect that there's more to my early morning rides, like the fact I don't have my delusion of grandeur shattered by some fast guy on a Huffy.

I wasn't around during his prime, but I thought it was a well known fact that RyanF was the fastest of them all.

Fastest sprint? Fastest ITT?

All I can say is that it reminds me of an old Bob Dylan song:
