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

They've got new colors this year for their off-road models. I'm hoping to lease a midnight blue one this year, or a gray as my second choice. I have a black one now, but black is so boring.

The Ritchey is nice too.
Mrs. GeneJockey's Sienna is so old that the video entertainment center takes VHS tapes, and has a single ceiling-mounted screen. She just drove it, almost on a whim, almost 400 miles.

And yeah the Ritchey looks nice. So does mine...

But people don't actually drive them off road. The horror!!
My sister had a white Bronco to match the one OJ was riding in. We lived off road at the time, and when we suggested taking it further off road, their heads began to spin.Their palms sweated. Their jaws dropped open and they couldn't speak. The subject was dropped.
Her husband currently has an FJ Cruiser.
Same.

You'd have to be a total idiot to buy an off-road model of the 4Runner and NOT use it off road because it's more expensive than the regular 4Runner model.

But you don't get the street cred with the on-road model!

Love the 4 Runners, and have always wanted one.

Took the Jeep off-road yesterday with two Domane strapped to the back. It was like being at Moab.

The Ritchey is nice too.
When we got married, my wife told me we would never own a minivan.

I’ve always felt deprived and like I was missing something in my life. But, it was out of my hands.

The minute I put a bike in mine and drove it to a ride start location, I realized "I've been doing this wrong my whole life up until now."

There's always the dream of a Sprinter, but people always want too much money for 'em.

The game is being played at Buhl Park in the kite field which has no seating. See map of Buhl Park on their website for details.

Does this look like a water treatment place? That's what Google suggests (if the address is correct). There's no signs. It's suspicious.
