    What Is Your Alternative Activity For Cycling?

    Taking long walks around the neighborhood is also fun, if I am not in the mood to ride around the streets. The peaceful walks is a great antidepressant alternative, and you also get to enjoy the fresh air, cats and dogs walking around, birds flying in the air, looking up at the sky, really...

    Jehovah's Witnesses, do they cycle? :D

    Yeah, it's to save gas and stuff, and also, since you will be stopping by door to door a lot of the time during the day, a car can be a little inconvenient, and expensive as well. If they are not walking to their destinations, they may as well get some exercise and cheap transportation along the...

    Any Juicing Meat Heads Here?

    Not me. I don't plan on ever competing professionally or whatever, I do it for recreation and as a sort of stress release, so I really don't see why I should get my hands on performance enhancing drugs. I'm pretty sure a lot of would-be professional racers do it apparently, but for me, who just...

    U.s.n. seal's ghost bike stolen

    It's a shame. The person who stole it either didn't know what he had, or he DID know what he had and is planning to sell it eventually. I think it's a shame, it's a bike commemorating a loss, I don't really get why lots of people have boundary issues when it comes to these things. I hope they...

    Pollution And The Elements Can Kill

    It's also noteworthy that cold air can cause asthma, and it would lead to the person not being able to breathe in a matter of seconds after being exposed to the cold air. So people with asthma who would even think of biking, I suggest you try to avoid those early winter morning runs, because...

    First cyclist to compete to paralympics with 3d-printed prosthetic leg

    I think it's great inspiration for people with prosthetics. For most people in his situation, they would rather hide their amputations, they would be ashamed to show them around, and the idea of competing professionally with a handicap would sound incredibly ridiculous for them. But with the...

    Ever Been Involved In A Bike Accident?

    I've been a pretty paranoid and safe biker, so I have never once been in an accident. Sure, there may be a few bumps and bruises every now and again, but you would be able to use your common sense when on the road, to be as safe as possible. Lots of things can happen in the road, like cars...

    When were you at your best?

    I think when you are in your prime (25), you would be the most healthy, as long as you have been living a healthy lifestyle beforehand, obviously. I think the endurance, stamina, and even the energy it takes to do a full run gets chipped off little by little as you get older, and you would need...

    174 miles on unicycle in 20 hours

    The core strength it must have took to balance that thing was insane. I would never even dream of reaching even a meter with a unicycle, much less near two hundred miles of road and pavement. He must have really had a ton of dedication to have gotten through with this challenge, as any mere...

    Road checkpoint for helmeted riders

    These guys are getting creative as each day passes. Good for them to have checkpoints, as it really is a dangerous world out there. Too bad though that criminals, no matter how many checkpoints you make, would always find a way to their destination. It's like they are rats in a sinking ship, no...

    Cycling At Night - Do You?

    Lots of thieves at night where I come from. I'd rather not risk it and get my bike stolen, or me killed. It's in a university belt, but it's more of just streets as far as the eye can see, poorly lit sidewalks, and pretty suspicious rest stops. I'd rather live, thank you very much. People here...

    Banana seats!

    What about just the regular one? Haha, but all in all, I think it just matters if it's padded or not, I'd rather not have my upper thighs on fire because of the friction from pedaling and not being able to get comfortable at the long ride because you are sitting on metal. I got one once, and it...

    tattoos??

    Nope, I am the type who has no intention of being committed to a mark on your body for the rest of my life. I can't even set my computer wallpaper up for more than a week without changing them. I would get eventually sick of everything, and would replace them, and with tattoos, it's pretty hard...

    What Type Of Bike Should A Beginner Buy?

    I have to say you have to get a pretty sturdy one, because if you are a beginner, you may end up bumping it a lot to different surfaces, and when it is all said and done, you would get a pretty battered bike for your attempts to ride properly. So you really need to have a half decent one...

    Is cycling ruining your relationships?

    Anything that ruins your life, work, or relationships is considered an addiction. It's just cycling, and you can do it once a day, or even just a few times a week, without it disrupting your life, or creating chaos in your relationships or at work. I think if that happens, you might want to...
