How To Be A Superstar at Road Bike Posting

Notices
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

You either have it or you don't. You'll know within your first few posts whether or not you have the right stuff.

Well your post count is way too low. You need about 20,000 more. You can start by replying to every single post in your own threads. The fact that you've only replied once in this thread shows how far behind you are.

You need some 20' typing intervals, if you can't keep your WPM above 100 for at least 3/4 of that you're just not cut out for the workload of long term BF postwhoring. You might be a competitor in some of the shorter threads, but you definitely wouldn't be a GC contender in the Schwag Stage Races

Thanks for the tips.

Maybe some day I will be able to dial it up to 400 W(PM) like the big boys.
