    Cycling and Traffic Light Crossings

    I'm not sure. I'm referring to cyclist who is riding the sidewalks and then using the the crosswalks. I talked to a few and the response I get is something like I am not insane enough to ride on the street. I have been playing in the streets since I was a boy in NYC, and now I do it with a...

    Cycling and Traffic Light Crossings

    I don't know what country you are from or what the laws are in your specific location. Everything in life is choice and as long as you know that and are willing to accept the consequences, go for it.(unless of course it is a felony of some sort) I obey the laws of the road in my city/state...

    http://www.cycling4all.com/ : another casualty

    Sorry to hear this also. Limerick, I have a query and thought you might be able to help. I am a junior member since 2009. Sometime during 2009 early 2010 I seem to remember a thread or survey that compiled and ranked the greatest cyclists of all time. I am not talking about your...

    Di Luca given two-year suspension

    Please give a definition for slagged off. I have no idea what that means and I can't reply until I know exactly what your post means. DiLuca, Valverde, Schumacher all should get suspensions if the proof is absolute. I find it interesting that the countries within Europe can't agree on...

    Is this sufficient enough?

    As a high school runner compare the intensity of your running workouts versus your bike riding. To get the equivalent of a training run of 5 miles on a bicycle you would have to do maybe 20 miles on a bike. To really get some training mileage on a bike you would have to put in some 35-50 mile...

    What websites do you actively follow?

    Pez cycling is very good for interviews with pro cyclists from different teams and countries. It gives me more information about the cyclists who don't get all the media attention.

    Ron Kiefel

    It is interesting to note that in 1989 (I think) Motorola took over sponsorship and introduced race radios to the peleton. This is also the year LeMond used the extended handle bars and the time trial aerodynamic helmet in the time trial. I would like to see more man on man competition and less...

    Rasmussen aims for top ten in San Luis

    He finished eigth in the Tour San Luis. I would like to see him in the mountains against Contador and Schleck. By his own admission, Rasmussen wasn't in shape for the Tour San Luis and I wonder if he can regain the form that he had in the past. Anyway, fat chance as I believe he has been...

    And I just thought you were trying to get something to eat. Funny.

    Greatest sportsman ever

    I too am a fan of Jim Thorpe and I have watched the Jim Thorpe story with Burt Lancaster portraying Jim Thorpe many times. However, Edwin Moses should be named for not only what he did on the track, but also for his efforts off the track. For nine years, nine months, and nine days he was...

    Lance Competitive in Kona Tri World Championships Dave Scott doesn't thinks so!

    Still don't like fishing. If Lance even attempts the Kona Tri, he is going to get dogged bigtime. He may be happy with his effort, but he will just be a celebrity entrant.

    Who else thinks

    OK, I don't like fishing and I usually like some more information before I make up my mind. I predict that RadioShack will not have a podium finish. Alberto will be first, A Schleck second, V Nibali third. Just because you want it doesn't make it so

    The Greatest

    I like that kind of thinking. It is really impossible to compare athletes from different eras. However, not being argumentative, you could say that Eddy accomplished more in his era in terms of entering more events and winning more events than Lance has accomplished in his era. Still can't...

    Who else thinks

    I agree that it is way too early in the season to make a decision about podium spots at the Tour de France. However, the only way Radioshack finishes 1,2,3 on the podium, is that no other teams show up. If Levi hadn't crashed out of the race last year, I think Astana would have had a decent...

    Lance Competitive in Kona Tri World Championships Dave Scott doesn't thinks so!

    Has Lance defined what his being competitive means? If it means finishing in the top half of all competitors including women, I would say he can accomplish that. If it means finishing in the top 50, I don't know. Why are we worrying about something over 2 years away? As somone earlier pointed...

    The Greatest

    Absolutely Eddy Merckx! Sounds like an advertisement. His accomplishments will never be challenged. The new world of cycling is so far removed from the cycling of his time and cyclists don't race as often as Eddy did. Don't even try to blame doping in cycling on Eddy. Cyclists were...

    Should FLYER be reinstated

    I have been on the Yahoo UK site recently because cycling news is slow right now. ***** Voet aka Peter Joachim aka Hein Verbrugger aka Flyer's finale is still alive and posting over there. The Brits hate him. He was banned November 2009 by Yahoo US after posting in excess of 1000 postings on...

    Armstrong seems to have started the war of words again

    Races are won on the cycles and not in newsprint. Since Armstrong realizes that it is unlikely that he could beat Contador just on pure cycling ability, he is trying to engage in pyschological warfare.

    Is an Alcoholic a Drug Addict?

    Yes and no is the answer to that question. If you are drinking alcohol quite frequently and it is screwing up your life and you are totally in denial, then you are like a drug addict. If you are an alcoholic as in AA, you don't drink anymore, but you are aware of how alcohol affected you when...
