Why we are Cyclists video

This sounds like the first conversation I had with my wife about cycling.
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

Bravo!

On a more serious note: the WW thread "On the Road Today..." perhaps best illustrates why I ride w/ glorious images posted by cyclists around the world. Truly extraordinary and often inspirational photographs that capture the essense of cycling for me: freedom and beauty of unthetered movement outdoors, the joy of using fine technology, and the pleasure of physical exertion. I refer skeptical friends who prefer golf and the NFL to the forum thread rather than trying in vain to explain why I dash out to the rural roads every chance I get, even in winter weather of late that they think is only good for a) drinking more beer and watching more golf on a 65" HD TV; or b) sliding down a clear-cut mountain in a National Forest and then being carried back to the top on a chair lift...

Nice Pritchet74.

I posted in the "On the Road Today" thread with pictures of my month in the French Alps last August / September. Back home training mostly in suburbia, I have nothing worthwhile to contribute... :(

It probably is my favourite thread online, especially Basilic's photos from around Geneva. :)

I had never even seen that thread at WW. Just killed an hour surfing thru some photos. Wish it was still light out - I would go ride!

Not why I am a cyclist, but why you'd think about becoming one.

Come for health and money, stay for the fun.

"Nothing compares to the simple pleasures of a bike ride," said John F. Kennedy, a man who had the pleasure of Marilyn Monroe.
