"Ha" is right.

 8-)

(although I've driven a sag wagon on the first three tours--not not not races, especially to the people who I've ended up following, the ones who came in last--of the county here.  This year's tail end pair had never ridden anywhere near 70 miles before, and they weren't in bad shape after the hot and hilly 60-some that they did)

You don't wear Spandex and an alien helmit when you ride, do you Jonesy? :-/ :)

I have a bike but haven't ridden it because I don't care for the Spandex biker pants -- I was thinking maybe I should wear a "G" string biker outfit. :)

Oh yeah, you gotta wear the gear mate. It makes you look like you're going fast even when you're standing still. Besides thongs are dangerous you could get a nasty sunburn wearing one of those. And I'll tell you what mate, there's no way we would get Amanda to drive the sag wagon if we went on the tour in that outfit.  ;D

And then there's the way this may be ending.

find out Saturday what the B sample shows--I don't think I would have wanted it to go to the same lab.

But, treehgger has pictures of a totally cute folding bicycle that might be even rideable.  Because of the way it folds, it is using a toothed belt instead of a chain and gear.



story here, with links to other folding bikes.
