for Simplyred, and other Tarmac lovers

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It could have been the bright lights or fresh-out-of-the-box paint job, but my first challenge was to reach down, pick my jaw up off the floor, mop up some drool, and regain composure. Yep, this black beauty was just screaming to be ridden, and raced, real hard.
