Mt. Doom: Beyond the Limit

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

For the real budget conscious, I'll give tours of the Los Angeles beach bike path for $100. Highlights include a power plant, a water treatment plant, hippies, a marina with real boats, and not one, not two, but three, count 'em, three piers! I'll even throw in some photos of you posing before any backdrop of your choosing. I accept PayPal.

We did 100 miles through the White Mtns 16 years ago in 1993. Franconia Notch, Crawford Notch, the Kangamangus Hwy, etc. Lots of vertical.

They should. If there's spinach at the end of this Mt. Doom ride then I'm in.

yeah that's a start. Why don't they have spinach pies at Wendy's? They could deep fry them for those who don't eat anything that isn't fried in oil.

Yodels as they are a near perfect food to kill off the next generation. One serving, 420 calories, 14 grams of saturated fat to go along with 220 mg of salt and 45 grams of sugar. Wow, why are we worried about the Taliban when were feeding our kids this crap.

So wait. Are you saying this food should be off the Pcad Training Table?

At 12500 miles per year you are one of the few that can keep Yodels off your wasteline. Now with with the sugar and saturated fat in them there can be no guarantee as to the state of your arteries etc.

F my stupid arteries. What did they ever do for me?

If it makes you feel any better, Yodels are off the Pcad Training Table. For a while at least.

God help me.

Well your arteries have gotten you up Mt. Doom and without them there would go the 12500 miles per year and youd be on that electric bike you were touting the other day .

Me Im a former Marlboro smoker of 28 years before I gave it up for this lunacy 25 years ago yet I liked my Ruths Cris or Ol Homestead 18 ounce steak, creamed spinach, oyster, cheese cake dinner once in awhile until they rushed me to the hospital last year thinking I had the big one. Turns out I ducked it but now thats out too .

I can have both: spinach mousse in the center of a Yodel.

Overrated body parts, with modern technology you can get them replaced. Carbon fiber arteries perhaps? But I digress, you should replace the Yodels with those awesome strawberry jelly rolls. I'm not sure if you're familiar with these because they're a coveted ghetto treat but there's enough high fructose corn syrup and Red Dye #2 in there to make any junk food junkie happy.
