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

yesterday ride

I'm on my way home from work and along the curb I see a hat. As I pass it I notice it's UPS hat. My buddy works for them so I stop and head back to throw in my backpack. Later I decide to make a detour and call my friend up telling him I have something for him that I found. He's curious so I ride to his house. As I'm on the phone with him I see a roadie spin past me. I put my phone in my bag and catch up to him. We get caught at a red light and have a quick conversation. The light turns green and I expect him to ride like a banshee. Instead the guy is going 15mph and I figure he's just warming up and will pick up the pace a bit. I felt like blowing by him but was imtidated by the size of his legs and our earlier talks how he rides around 400 miles a wk. I opted to just enjoy our ride before I had to turn down a side to street to go to my friends house. Next time I'm pushing the pace. LOL

The guy was going so slow because he was looking for his work hat that he had dropped earlier. He never did find it though. The next day he was fired from work at UPS for losing company property........There, feel better?

I think that fabio is ADHD and is easily distracted. He started thinking about the guy's legs and forgot to finish the story.

Our UPS guy has Guads.

But I'm pretty sure the fedex ground guy is stronger.
