I'm relegated to the off topic. First and foremost I'd like to say how much I like the site/boards. It's nice to see a sports message board that isn't completely full of philistines.

That being said. From time to time I will no doubt post about cycling, a sport I am truly starting to love. As a working bike messenger bikes pretty much are my entire life outside of Football and Beer(I think one begats the other). I will also from time to time put out announcements about local races, legal and otherwise.

So, bear with my inherent bike nerdiness.

I have been riding my bike more and not running to help my back out.
I also was a HUGE BMX fan as a kid and enjoy that still.
I'd be interested in your cycling posts, keep em coming.

Here's the bike I had. It got stolen the day before I started high school from Shoregate.

This was my ride back in the day. Ah the memories, I used to take this apart clean it up, put it back together and hit the streets for hours. Those definately were the glory days. Now I have a mountain bike that hangs from the ceiling in the basement and collects dust and spider webs. I really need to get off my ass and hit the pavement with it.

I got a Trek 1000 A series when I tore up my ankle so I could rehab after surgery. I still ride it some, there really is not a lot like going 25-30mph downhill on a road bike.

My son has a Haro F4 that the rides on some dirt jumps down here in SC.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.
