Have you ever gone out with the Great White Sharks or the Tiger Sharks?

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 isn't road cycling related. Is it winter already?

Is this a vague reference to the man in California who was eaten by a Great White Shark yesterday?

I have swum in the Pacific Ocean, home of the Great White, Tiger, and many other species of shark. I lived to tell the tale.
