  1. @Anthropologist Underground Allow me to clarify. I meant that style generally would matter less. My personal cycling style is an abomination, clothed or not. »

  2. Might I respectfully suggest that my style would matter less if cyclists were to just strip off post-ride as the soccer players do. »

Flies and dogs, two things that we don’t need on a climb.I had descended down this street many times, but I had never before ridden up it.

  4. @Marcus Yes. Exactly except safe for work. Thanks! »
