Hi, just wondering if it is possible to access the old cyclingplus forum topics? There was one thread in particular I was looking for, years ago there was a thread full of cycling haiku. Is it possible to retrieve or is it all lost?

    thanks for the suggestion, tried it and variations on t, no luck, but I did find:

    from rboon99:

    Cycling Haiku - wind pushes into me, I am a sail for the wrong direction, headwind

    In fear of pursuit
    I press on into the gale
    Quietly weeping

    Well, I bought Cycle Sport today cos it's the first magazine out with a TdF preview, and to my surprise, I find that they've done a haiku for all of the main Tour stars.

    For example, Little Schleck's goes like this:

    Looks like a small child
    Rides up mountains very fast
    Likes staring at girls.
