    And no, this shouldn't be in the cycling forums, because it applies to all cyclists...not just those of us who spend $1000's on our human-powered 2-wheeled glorified motorcycles.

    I ordered that bike in my profile pic two days ago. It's coming from the UK (location near you). It still isn't here.

    If you can make it here quicker, please drop by the nearest DHL site and pick it up for for me. icon_razz.gif

    Is this a pick-up thread or a biking thread? icon_confused.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    I love riding bike but on paved roads. I did off-road once with some friends. Fell a few times and got rashes from falling into bushes too.

    I love riding bicycles. Been doing so now for 60 years. icon_eek.gif

    OMG, I didn't really realize that until I thought about it, to write that. 60 years - scary.

    People will ask me: "Bob, how can you ride a bicycle, when you can barely walk with a cane?"

    The answer is simple: less foot pressure on the pedals. My joints still have a full range of motion, so I can do the pedaling action. When I walk my full body weight in pressing down on my joints, but when I pedal a bike, with gears, I can limit that pressure to about 20-25 pounds. Much easier.

    I call my bike my 2-wheeled wheelchair. A familiar friend, as I was riding 60 miles a day when I was 14, on a derailleur bike that was very rare where I lived in 1963. When all my friends were riding tanky Schwinns no more than around the block.

    My bike just feels like an extension of my body. And now does for me what my own body can no longer do.

    Paul rode his bike from Hollywood, Florida to Wilton Manors, where we live. That's where I saw his bike. A tough ride. Not so much the 25-mile distance (50 round trip, I think?) as the roads & traffic, which in Florida aren't very friendly to bikes.

    In fact, I might call them hostile. I've literally seen a teenage biker die in front of my eyes after being hit by a car. Yeah, a tough place to ride a bike.

    I love my new road bike. Cycling is a lot healthier and less stressful than owning and driving a car. It is much cheaper as wellicon_biggrin.gif

    Absolutely! And I look at the OP paulflexes, whom I knew years ago before he really got into biking, and I'm astonished. Today I barely recognize him, he's transformed, and all to the good. Besides losing some weight, he's lost about 5-10 years in appearance.

    He ought to update his pics, because he really does look good. I told him that when I saw him in person recently. And that I attribute to his regular biking.

    I do bike and love it. Just don't have time to do it more than occasionally. Great exercise.

    Whoever wrote that is as bad as the fat women who put on makeup and a gallon of perfume to ride on the bike path. Or worse. The fat chicks are at least out there.

    STFU and ride.
