    Makes me feel great everytime another rider is chased down, young, old, male, female, doesn't matter. Just another meal for me. I am attempting a mini comeback this spring. I use these meals as a guide. The better meals are those on expensive bikes..... :)

    I noticed less prey lately in my territory...

    Money controls all governments decisions.

    I was thinking of moving to another country and using the special rights immigrants get on myself as I shall be an immigrant. Then I realized that I would hate myself, plus I love Canada too much.....

    You have to wise though. A comeback can be a backfire if too many are munched in the process. Remember the last line from Dylan's "Positively Fourth Street". Even today it still rings its bell.

    Sure, it's very important, but, remember, public opinion controls where the money goes. It is becoming more and more PC to favor bicycle routes and lanes as transportation alternatives, so money is being allocated for such where it never used to be. We are beginning to see bike routes and greenways even in MY community, which is amazing and a very welcome change.

    being as I work 60 hours per week, since I am now manager at the gym, I haven't been riding outdoors much. Does riding the recumbant at the gym every night for over an hour count?:rolleyes:

    Tough audience (Says Dangerfield as he pulls on his collar).

    I'm off for a ride, riding up to the pool which is at the top of some very steep climbs, will do a brief sauna, and a few laps (no work today, hourrah!) and when I get back, I expect this thread to be up and kicking again, full of clever posts laden with tawdry inuendos.

    Cheers,
    Sara

    we'll do our best. but some people here just want to talk about cycling!?!
    experimented with duct tape last night. might have over done it though, too chicken to pull it off though so am still wearing it. it looks kind of cyber-punk, but not sure i can get away with that at my age. looks like i will be spending the weekend dressed as an extra from barbarella.
    no change there then

    I don't know, how many races occur inside on a recumbant? Of course it does not count. Look yet another excuse, work 60 hours per week. So what? Still leaves you 108 hours to ride outside!!

    How can it backfire. If anything it might pop my huge ego. Which I do not see happening. Just enjoy riding and would like to take it to next level again....

    Maybe that is how it works in your country, but not mine. The government spends money on what-ever they like....

    just got back from a lousy spinning . it was more like a dance class, up down back front smile etc. everybody say yoh! i looked good though in silver duct tape body suit (boy it's going to hurt when i take it off, yikes)

    prefer it when they just say 'sprint like you being chased by racist canadians mother f**kers!"

    Here it is all, pay close attention. Previously this individual has touted his native indian heritage and how white immigrants detroyed everything (which I can't disagree with the terrible things that white settlers did) but look at his above quote. It reads to me that he doesn't claim the indian heritage for his son... of course his son may not be biological... It is quite amusing how the wind blows...


    On a cycling note. Can someone please provide me with 2 things. The original intent of the bicycle.....was it easy economical transportation, or was it racing. Secondly, accordign to the internationl cycling handbook, what is the official time requirement for the time one is on a bicycle for it to officially fall into the classification of a "ride"

    Oh, my, Jacob, when I said duct tape was good for attaching pantlegs, I didn't mean to imply that it could replace actual articles of clothing.

    I do fear that you're going to lose a good deal of body hair taking it off, but then again they say the Brazilian is IN this year for men, too. Much cheaper this way than going to the salon, so I guess it won't be all bad.

    What exactly IS spinning class? You just go and ride a stationary bike while a gym nazi (sorry bleach't, just a term!) in spandex shouts at you over really loud techno music? Sounds fun. No, really.

    Well then, "sprint like you being chased by racist canadians mother f**kers!" as you say in jolly old England!

    it does sound a bit rubbish doesn't it. i only do it when i am injured and the weathers horrible, honest.

    on a plus point i hear that having no body hair is the only way to be taken seriously when out cycling these days.

    Now For the bicycle, I believe it was invented by a native North American Canadian who raced over the icy plains. But then it was stolen and exploited by asians -- esp. the Chinese -- who abusively took to using the bike as a vehicle to transport things quickly, cheaply, silently, and without polluting.

    What scares me most is that some groups of people, which certain renowned scholars refer to as "turbine heads" may attempt to not only enter Canada, but also ride bicycles there, thereby changing the face of Canadian history as we know it, forever.

    Sends chills up your spine, doesn't it?

    P.S. Someone else will have to tell us what a ride is...

    I don't know about the men with shaved legs thing, I have serious reservations here. Can't say I've ever gotten really close to one, but I've always kind of like hairy men. Too smooth and they either remind me of boys, or, well, not very masculine men.

    But perhaps I simply lack experience!

    Again, "sprint like you being chased by racist canadians mother f**kers!".

    officially a ride involves lycra clothing otherwise it's just pretend. it's not really the length*, it's how tight your shorts are

    *of ride, obviously
