2012 Road ID Commercials

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

2012 Road ID Commercials

Just brilliant.

They must have had a blast making them.

I watch the races on a DVR, and skip the commercials - but it's always worth slowing up for 30 seconds of Bobke humor.

(I know there was a thread about this a year ago )

Why doesn't he just ride to his ride? I know Bobke is inherently ridiculous, but he's even more ridiculous standing beside a bicycle hitchhiking.

Funny ads though.
