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

I'm no auto expert, but frankly, some of the **** I read in the auto press makes me wonder how those guys get their jobs.
Auto Trader doesn't count as automotive journalism.
