PB's cycling QOTD*

Recommended Posts

*question of the day (or week, depending if I can be arsed)

Anyway, I like cycling. I like prying into the lives of others. This topic covers both things. Bonus.

QUESTION ONE........WHAT DO YOU RIDE? 

This is my bike

It's old, heavy, a little bit rusty and generally a piece of cheap and nasty crap (but it does the job)

Sometimes I cruise the 'hood on this....

A light hardtail (Corratec), which got me pretty much wherever I wanted to go:

I have a BMX which I haven't ridden for a year, but I'll get back on it soon (maybe). F-it Conway.

Finally, this old Phillips frame circa 1960 found on a demolition site at work. I have been building up using used parts bought from eBay.

Very nice hardtail Bry.  Bet that's lots of fun. 

Only used it a couple of times. Feels huge as I've been riding road bikes so much lately. Planning on using it in anger very soon.

Been thinking about getting my bike out. I need to get some exercise and my pedal death trap may be just the thing

Think it was a little over 70km with a mountain bike, it was mostly tarmac and flat(ish).

Longest ride (timewise) I think was 63km with around 2000m of elevation in total from Ax-les-Thermes (FR) to Andorra la Vella (AD). Again on mountain bike with wide tires on tarmac and there was chest wind on the downhill section too, so that felt like riding on flat roads instead of downhill. Beautiful sunny and hot summer day.

I did hit one once. Right in the forehead. It didn't sting me though :D

I'm not sure they even sting.

Bees can sting, but they die if they do. Not like them evil wasps!

Bumblebees can sting, but rarely do. I've been hit on the forehead by one on my bike and it left a mark!
