What kind of cyclist are you?


Are you the young dude with boo koo piercings and the need for speed without the fear of bodily harm?
***
Are you the overweight dude with the $7000.00 carbon fiber Trek whose only beef with life in general is that the world doesn't produce enough cycling related accessories for you to purchase?
***
Are you guy who's hitting the amateur mountain bike weekend racing circuit on a $600.00 GT. And doing quite well actually.
***
Are you the professor on the commuter bike with his back arched to an impossible degree with his pannier's full of books, commuting "come hell or high water" no matter what the weather?
***
Are you the guy in his extremely early fifties who loves commuting to work and "poking" around the singletrack on the weekends?
(That's me !)
***
Are you the girl who hits the bike path on the weekends without fail, constantly amazed you didn't start cycling at an earlier age because it's so much fun and your actually loosing weight while doing it?
***
Are you the guy who thinks way to much of himself to be friendly with anyone whose not on an $8000.00 road bike like his own?
***
Are you the person who loves getting out on the weekends to cycle with their friends?
***
Are you the 70 something year old woman I see in my neighborhood riding the cruiser bike on Saturday afternoons?
***
Or are you the "urban warrior" committed to keeping up with the flow of traffic in an all out attempt to show the transporting public your innercity cycling skills?

Which ever category any of us fall into, we all share that simple infinite feeling of pedaling "The Noblest Invention."



The bicycle.
