A road cycling section.

Iím very disappointed with you.
A Gentleman in the mountains, no matter what his means of access, should be appropriately attired at all times, specifically in a manner which befits his modesty and public decency.

I approve of the gravel thing. All is forgiven.

Haha, didn't see this post! 

Yea, I tried to warn you in my other post.  Just pretend it's not really here, i find that works most of the time.

Is this your first post? The foot is wedged in the door. It won't be long before you buy one!   ;D

I have just double checked and there is a remove post button!  So i've always got that option to cover my tracks!

And even if I did want to ride weirdy bikes, what's the point in buying one, I'm not riding on the road with the general populace until I think there's a less than 50% chance of me being run over.  I'm using facebook comments to gauge the general consensus and it's not pretty!

 :D :D It's not quite as alarming as all that. Mostly it's about getting scared - people seem to miss the point that scared doesn't necessarily = nearly getting run over.

I don't really want to go on a ride where i'm having to consider whether i'm being duly or unduly scared about a ton+ of metal squashing me.

And it's only getting scared about being run over until it's not...  I prefer my crashes to happen as a result of my own actions, rather than someone else deciding I shouldn't be there.
