RULE #5 - HTFU This is what happens when you hit a pothole at 24 MPH and go flying into a huge thorn bush. This occurred on mile 70-out-of-100. I’m no Hoogerland, but I must admit I was proud to be able to finish my century ride, even after the crash. HTFU.
“While the minimum number of bikes one should own is three, the correct number is n+1, where n is the number of bikes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of bikes owned that would result in separation from your partner.”
Rule #12 / The correct number of bikes to own is n+1.
Rule 7: tan lines should be cultivated and kept razor sharp.
Under no circumstances should one be rolling up their sleeves or shorts in an effort to somehow diminish one’s tan lines. Sleeveless jerseys are under no circumstances to be employed. (Velominati)
Well I’ve certainly maintained this one today!!!
Photograph of Ferdinand “Ferdi” Kübler found on Velominati. Ferdi had impressive palmarès including the Tour de France (1950), World Road Championships (1951) ,Bordeaux-Paris (1953), Liège–Bastogne–Liège (1951, 1952) and La Flèche Wallonne (1951, 1952) among many others.
Got some new cycle friends..posted an invitation for a 120k social ride quoting velominati Frank Strack “if you are fudging your training around the weather you are off The path”, but with unexpected extreme storm and cold rain upcomming, i had no way out to than to show up as the organizer.. Found in @jobunt and @freddiesdrop other like-minded fools to ride against The storm…had to win every meter like climbing a first category col…on The way back we gladly left the KOM to others.
I will never quote Frank Strack nor tell others they are off The path…today i almost landed in one of The rivers.
Bernard Hinault on the way to winning the 1980 edition of Liège–Bastogne–Liège in Arctic conditions. It’s well worth reading Velominati’s account of the event to get an idea of the scale of his achievement.
