Another Pcad Cycling Zen Master Class

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

Yet another BF Intellectual Interlude.

But you do get points for an accurately self-descriptive BF User Name. Well done.

Actually... Michael Barry is Canadian... His dad lives here in TO - amazing framebuilder. Now has a bicycle museum - quite something to see bikes going back to late 1800's.

Will the mysterious pothole on Mt. Doom be your demise again?
Unsual popping/zinging on the Cervelo cause the DNF?
Cheap broken pedal?

You are already pre-race excusing.Put some f,n clove oil on the tooth,hike up the skirt Sally,and show these spandex pecker heads 50+ people have some "nads".

If nothing else,you,ll sure look dandy at the back of the pack in those Vaudeville shoes.

If you don't put mayo on your fries, don't go to Europe.

BTW...we are glad to see you have a summer job. That fry costume is pretty cool.
