Tagged again… Thanks Don you git!

Oh go on then….

If you could have any one — and only one — bike in the world, what would it be?
aaarrgghhh!! As a former LBS employee there are so many choices… I think it would have to be
the SantaCruz Blur LT. I’ve never ridden it but it looks awesome!

Do you already have that coveted dream bike? If so, is it everything you hoped it would be? If not, are you working toward getting it? If you’re not working toward getting it, why not?
No I do not have my dream bike, I’m not currently working towards it but in year or so I may try and get it through work’s cycle to work scheme.

If you had to choose one — and only one — bike route to do every day for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why?
No NO NO!! one route, only one route! I do a different route every day to and from work, I could never, i’d have to vary it biking, running, running backwards, biking backwards, crawling to stop my self going mad.
But if I had to choose it would probably be a big 30 mile loop round ladybower and derwent!

What kind of sick person would force another person to ride one and only one bike ride to to do for the rest of her / his life?
It’s a sick twisted world out there made all the worse for people like you Elden!!

Do you ride both road and mountain bikes? If both, which do you prefer and why? If only one or the other, why are you so narrowminded?
I do ride both… I prefer the mountain bike because I love to climb the mountains and the rough stuff!

Have you ever ridden a recumbent? If so, why? If not, describe the circumstances under which you would ride a recumbent.
No I don’t need a wheelchair!

Have you ever raced a triathlon? If so, have you also ever tried strangling yourself with dental floss?
Not yet I hope to… the triathlon that is not strangle myself with dental floss.

Suppose you were forced to either give up ice cream or bicycles for the rest of your life. Which would you give up, and why?
Ice cream no problem……Have you ever tried sorbet?!

What is a question you think this questionnaire should have asked, but has not? Also, answer it.
Q: Why do you cycle?
A: Why don’t you it’s awesome! and i get to mountain bike with my wife is just the best thing ever!!

You’re riding your bike in the wilderness (if you’re a roadie, you’re on a road, but otherwise the surroundings are quite wilderness-like) and you see a bear. The bear sees you. What do you do?
Now being in the wilderness I’m going to suggest that I meet the bear near the top of a mountain and will therefore turn my nose downhill and out run his hairy ass on the descent.
Or go out in a flame of glory beating the bear to death with my Kona! then getting eaten by the bear’s mates!

Now, tag three biking bloggers. List them below.
I don’t like spam but as Don has tagged me for a 2nd time…. bastard! (i like him really!)

  1. I got chased by a dog…not a bear but still pretty exciting. Did you know big dogs can run about 20 mph before they get dropped?
