Man pushes bike to top of mountain


Begs the question, why didnt he ride it..? (or at least try) he didnt even ride it down... pussy

Ha ha ha..... Yeah, I agree, he should have at least tried to ride it. I think my old road bike was pretty close to 37 lbs. :rolleyes:

It would have been pretty cool if he modified it and put in some MTB gears and rode it up. That would have been quite a sight!

I forget his name or avatar, but a guy that posts here rode the TdF route this year on the same days as the race, and also including transfers, on a bike with gear that weighed 45 kg! Imagine pushing that weight up into the winds on Ventoux!
