Are you a 'serious' cyclist?
« on: December 18, 2013, 08:42:02 pm »
Put together this piece on 'We are cyclists. Everyone else just rides bikes. 20 ways you know you are serious'

http://decaironman-training.com/2013/12/18/we-are-cyclists-everyone-else-rides-a-bike-20-ways-you-know-are-serious/

Had some really good comments on another forum, some very witty remarks - it is tongue in cheek after all - and would like to write up a 'reply' article. Any riders got other examples, ideas? Thanks

Funny, thanks for the link.

I've let that kind of stuff go as I've gotten older and wiser and more interested in other things besides miles and gears. These days I tend to appreciate BikeSnobNYC's outlook on cycling, cyclists and the cycling industry.

Warning: Adult language, adult points of view, real world content about cycling in a big city, commuting and racing. He's crass and obscene and outrageous and apologizes to no one for his rants; not for the timid!

I play go. I use Macintosh. Of course I ride a recumbent

Yes I am. That's a good one. I'm on a long tour now.
