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

Touchy-feely method. No tape measure required.

That's fairly good. But you'd better sit this one out, Junior. It's gonna get rough, and someone's likely to give you the finger.

(Sorry for the Pcadishness.)

That's good...but already has been used in this thread.

You can use what has been used a'fore. Personally, I'd hate to take such a high-handed approach.

It was rather beneath me.

For punishment, I should do what my Mom made us do when we were bad in the car. Sit on our hands. Oh wait, isn't that what this is all about?
