Divorcing the Bike

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

Divorcing the Bike

I know it is not a road bike, but I had a good laugh at this after my 40 miler (bonked with about 7 miles left which was awesome). Enjoy

Haha, that's brilliant. Even if that bike doesn't sell, at least you will have made some people laugh!
