My 2019 goals are as follows:
1. Keep up on my club's "Fritter Friday" ride (a fast group ride done every Friday). Last year I was a strong B group rider, but struggled a bit with the As. There is...

I agree with this. There really isn't much point for a beginner to do an FTP test anyway. Your "newbie gains" are fast enough that the number you get is likely to be obsolete within a week or two...

"Europe" has caught other dopers. Furthermore, there were plenty of Americans who worked to cover up what Lance did., and many more who sponsored or supported him despite knowing he was almost...

As someone who is neither American nor European (so, in theory at least, an unbiased observer) I would say this is not true.

I get this and I agree.
This seems very irrational to me. You know there's a risk of being hit now. After being hit once, your risk of being hit *again* is exactly what your current risk of being...

It is truly amazing how much you and I disagree.

But this was/is kind of my point. He got caught. He should be punished. Whether it is "good for the sport" isn't what matters.

No rule is ever 100% enforceable. By your standard, you'd have no rules.

For some sports, this is the case. Not all.
That's pretty much the definition of cheating.
Who cares? He did the...

Milk doesn't bloat everyone. It is, in theory, a good blend of carbs and protein for a post-workout recovery drink.

As I understand it, the whole "recovery window" idea has been deemed to be somewhat overrated. Yes you might absorb nutrients faster, but unless you are doing a crazy amount of volume each day (like...

USADA are officials, not participants.
Are you implying that you think it is okay to cheat? Does honesty mean nothing to you?

Or at least one American had a sense of honesty and fair play. Morals are far to rare these days it seems.

I wear my work clothes when I commute in. It's about 10 km each way. My work is casual, so I benefit from that (shorts and t-shirt in the summer). Having said that, I'll usually take transit if I...

You should follow your heart here. What's the purpose of a bike really? To make you happy. Don't worry about which bike is slightly better or worse....
