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

It's been a Decade!!

It's been a Decade!!

I'm celebrating an anniversary ... one full decade of Bike Forums membership. I signed up 10 years ago this month!

Somehow I don't think I anticipated that forums, in general, would last this long.



Anyone else been around here 10 years or more?

Grouch Marx use to say, I would never belong to any organization that would have someone like me as a member.

Rowan will be at 10 years too in June ... and that's when we "met". I posted a question about the 2003 PBP, and he replied.

Congrats, Machka, you are one of the members that makes BF a great place. It was nice having you and Rowan over for dinner and some good conversation, I hope that you both get back this way soon.
