It is a wild, wild, world out there on the World Wide Web. I certainly don’t want my readers limited to just my narrow view of the experiences of a cyclist. It is time to expose you all to the varied world of the sport. So, I am instituting the “Random Page of the Day” post that will appear from time to time.
Okay, I admit it. It is just that I am lazy and can’t always think of something to write about… or I have something really valuable to write about but I don’t want to research enough to make it worthwhile. So, I hope you enjoy this filler.
It is what I call it, a random page. It is some page about cycling that I have seen in the past or have come upon as I check out various sites. Today’s is an oldie but goody.
From BikeRadar.com and the Fat Cyclist comes, “Tips For Becoming A Roadie.” Both mountain bikers and roadies should enjoy this one… triathletes? Maybe not.

It’s a well-known fact that roadies bind their arms to their sides when not riding bikes, doing everything they can to facilitate the atrophy of these non-contributing limbs.
