Pics of You on Your Bicycle in 2014

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

Because I'm riding it on the road, not a closed track.

I fund these techniques that might be useful in eliminating the need for brakes.

Brake pads last longer, cost less, and are more effective at stopping than skid or skip stops.
