I'm a little bit concerned

My last three rides have been off road on my cross bike and I've really enjoyed them.

Am I "on the turn"?

In my defence I still find Mrs Tank very attractive and enjoy looking at the "women in lycra" thread.

    on the turn? you mean from a wimpy wussy roadie to a hairy arsed, he man with testosterone pumping out of every pore?

    possibly:

    do you love mud? do you ride through deep muddy puddles up to your knees cackling like a fool?

    can you tell sheep species from the censored in your teeth?

    can you repair your bike with just twigs, grass, gaffa tape and zipties. after breaking it to bits (along with and arm or leg or two) on a near vertical mountain side?

    until you can say 'yes' to all these (in a very deep voice that will bring doe's following you in the forest) , then you are just an ordinary man.


    As for me? I am a mountain biker!

    ... but i do like a bit of the easy stuff on my road bike, just for a change.

    :wink:

    Can you communicate using fully-formed words and sentences rather than monosyllabic grunts?

    If so, you're still a roadie.

    if you can communicate with fully formed words and sentences, then you are not working hard enough.

    which proves my point about he-men (and women) mountain bikers, we work at 190% at all times.

    Have no fear, because riding a cross-bike is the purest form of off-road biking, not being encumbered with ridiculous amounts of complex components, shocks that leak air and oil, bushings and bearings that wimp-out at the first sign of a puddle and requiring ridiculously low gears to haul a £2.5k bike that weighs 25lbs up a hill when you can breeze past them on something that cost £800.

    Unless of course you have a hankering to wear baggy shorts and tops over perfectly decent riding kit, then my friend, you are beyond redemption!
