Mark replied to VikR's discussion James May on cyclists
"Maybe just semantics. Different definitions of commuting, training, and special clothing? I love my "special clothing" for Manly Dam, and might be guilty of using a little "electric lycra" assistance for my commute. But I'm…"

DrFine replied to VikR's discussion James May on cyclists

Si replied to VikR's discussion James May on cyclists
"How many of us proactively attempt to "greet" (wave, nod, lift of the fingers from the bar, say something) to pretty much every other cyclist we come across? That's soooooo last decade*. *Actually it is, but there are a lot more…"
