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

There was a little incident during BMX racing practice where an official tried to cross the track, but underestimated rider's speed apparently:

LesterOfPuppets said when he was growing up he watched the news (6-7 p.m.) waiting for dinner. So that's what we're talking about--dinner time during the '70s. Or '50s, for some of you.

Incorrect. When I was the age Heidi was when Stormy Daniels hit the news. 2018, should be high school years, I think.

high school was in the 80s for me.
