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

This is road cycling related - I'm looking for a post where there were a bunch of facepalms (including the tactical one), bongo, etc. Hopefully a botto/bongo. And a popcorn icon. There had to be something in road cycling. Right?

Heh. I didn't think of that. I was talking about BF with friends. Want to find a road cycling post, esp one with a tactical face palm. I can't search for it, tried for a bit. There was one where there were facepalms after facepalms, popcorn, and probably a bongo or three. But I can't remember the actual topic of the thread. Which, in BF, is kind of an aside.

Ask and Ye shall receive.


With all of the know-it-alls and blowhards here in the road section I am flabbergasted that you could not find one of these.

I saw and rejected that one. I don't want a post about facepalms, I want a post that provokes them. Of course I may have inadvertently created one. I just don't want this to end up in Foo since I don't go there.

The tactical facepalm is classic. Yes, I googled it but for the first few pages of hits it doesn't show cycling (even if I put in bikeforums, cycling, etc). I need context for my non-bf but roadie friends to appreciate. I wanted to send them a link to a good facepalm/popcorn post.

I may have it here.

thanks
