With regard to the fans showing real class...thats kinda like when you drop bombs on the LA show, right?
Oh yeah that's really classy...
As the above quoted post is absolutely, positively sure to **** somebody off...I just wanted to say a few words.
1. I don't post often on this forum (twice today!!! almost to ten!!!) because I seem to always forget my password and by the time I retrieve it, I've forgotten what I was going to say in the first place. (Old age is gonna kill me yet) Also, it seems almost every post turns into a drug discussion....it gets kinda old...I don't want to waste my time.
2. I am not some alternate poster that changes account names faster than your mom changes her underwear. (Tell her I said Hi please....)
3. I enjoy riding my bike.
For many reasons, I am a fan of many cyclists. I am kind of partial to Hincapie, I lived in Greenville, SC for four years; but I like several cyclists because when I'm out for a ride and need to dig deep on that 3 meter climb (yes I'm old...and slow...), I imagine Cunego digging deep, or LA, or Schleck, or George, or even AC. Heck, I even imagine Voelkler and he's French!! I do this to motivate myself to push harder, faster, farther than before. I ride because I like to ride. I went for a ride yesterday and almost got run over, rode again today and almost got t-boned again. Tomorrow, im probly gonna ride again. I ride because its fun, its good exercise, and the summertime in the state of Washington is absolute perfect riding weather. Not to mention the fact I can ride up several mountain passes that if a race were to ever go over, would definitely be something to see. Heck, just 2 weeks ago I rode to Sunrise on Mt Rainier. The big mountains of the tour at just over 2000 meters?? Sunrise climb: 10 miles average 6.5 -7% elevation 6,400 feet. If I want flats...I live roughly 5 mostly downhill miles from pugent sound. The views are awesome!
If you ever get the chance, come and ride...just make sure it's mid July through the end of September. The rest of the year it rains.
PS: For those of you that don't have sense of humor...go visit a bike store and look at the price tags. You never know, you might just find yourself smiling the next time your suffering up that climb, as it starts to rain, on your crappy steel Bottechia.
