    Think about it mate...

    Also why do you have a picture of the cannibal in your locker, I realise you're proud of what you do but thats asking for it a bit isn't it?

    Don't get me wrong I've got nothing against the picture in the locker etc. It just seemed that you were worried about what other people thought of you and that the picture was escalating the problem.

    Sorry if I'm coming accross as a bit thick but being in middle school would make you how old? If its between about 12 and 14/5 you're gunna cop some shit regardless. If high school is like college here 16/7/8 then you'll have a lot better time of it. In high school (middle for you?) kids get hung up about their own insecurities and need someone to target that'll make people look past these insecurities. In other words the kids who are bagging the shit out of you are jealous of something that you've got.

    Just a coupla little things that might interest you: cyclingnews.com a site you might know about but great for keeping up with everything. Also if you like your magazines http://www.ridemedia.com.au/ might be of interest to you. Would probably be expensive to get to america but is by far the best in the world that I have seen so far. 4 times a year and the last issue was around 200 pages.

    Keep up the riding and sorry if I came acrros a bit unsympathetic I just saw the picture in the locker thing as asking for a bit of trouble that you didn't need to put up with.

    Your so right, and usualy people dont get on to me about it. But they do sometimes and all I can do is shake my head. you see, here in ky, every thing sucks. I mean It's pretty here but the people just suck! they are rude, stupid, close minded, simple minded, anti gay I could go on and on [what we like to call in the states, rednecks] and just recently, the 51% not to generalize that the 51% is that bad, but the ones in kentucky are. And im 14:)

    Yes, and the people have no reguard for people on bikes while in a vehicle. I have cussed and raised my middle finger many times! One time I was just riding along across town on my warm up and some bastard in a s#ity old gas guzzlin truck drove up and yelled "FAGG" I was severly pissed! but lately peeps have been yelling "lance!" at me, wich is a refreshing change from fagg!

    have a female friend whenever we get together. she is the kind of girl that is free spirited and is fun to be with and says to me most of the time to bring my bike to see her but she doesn't bike. when we meet in the park the first minute she keeps telling me that i am In great shape and she glances at my package for a couple of seconds During the time we are together talking and walking she pats me on my butt a couple of times and says your in great shape One time I did an about face when she said I was in great shape and her hand landed right on first she said oops then laughed and then said that's what friend's are for. The next time we got together she wore red shiny spandex shorts and they were super tight and wow first time I saw her in spandex.She said she wanted to blend in with me and told her that she was in great shape to and patted her on the butt a very firm butt that is.

    I wear my lycra proudly. Plus when ever you ride buy a girl they always give you a second look, and usually a smile. Wether it is that you look sexy in you shorts, or if its cuz they think its funny you still get a second look.:D Be proud, you have worked hard for your legs, and but, show em off!

    I wear padded lycra shorts, but with baggy shorts over the top. I personally think lycra makes me look like a twit, plus I ride a 16kg/35lb bike (I'm a commuter, not a racer) which weighs me down alot more :p.

    That's the bit where you pull out your D-Lock ;).

    Nobody here thinks it's wierd at all. Our school is big for wrestling and swimming, etc, so nobody thinks twice about it, really. It's cooler in the summer and much more aerodynamic, and it shows dedication to your sport. Not even the football jocks laugh - because they're wearing it underneath their pads as a base layer.

    Yeah I know what you mean, all the guys at my school are ''hardcore'' football fans, its all they go on about, but when you mention cycling half the time they just try to use it against you, they are pathetic.

    Not many guys laugh about the lycra here because we all use it for rugby, and where baggy team shorts on top, its only the shaving the legs bit that people laugh at, and make stupid jokes about, but like many have said it shows dedication, and shows that you are commited to your sport, which many at my school aren't, while they are all out getting drunk and smoking, I (we) are all doing good things to improve our fitness, and also have a great social life out of it. To be honest, when people laugh at me, I don't really care, because I know that they are the losers, and we are the ones that are doing things in our lives.
