What does "NM" Meansidley
Jul 3, 2001 2:53 PM
Alright your cycling cyber freaks -- I have been glued to this website for months. My productivity at work is way down and my fiance says that if she hears one more story about grz mnky's persnicketty comeback or the sage advice dolled out by Doug Sloan, she is gonna leave me.

Despite the endless hours spent trolling this site, I cannot figure out what NM means. Someone please tell me what in god's name does "NM" mean??

Is really gargantuan

in NYC's Central Park.
Sprint with the muggers!

Concerned about the grades.
Altitude gets you.

pre-holiday ride


I don't surf weekends
weeknights, holidays or times
when i'm not at work


working with 'puters
spoiled my fun as a chiphead
now they are the bane


weekends i sit home
when not on my bicycles
working on haiku

(end, begin various unrelated...)

lonefontranger, you,
me: separated soulmates!
got skull valve covers?

this morning, bike route
bright jersey, helmet cover
lookin' like lemond!

yesterday, the fourth
fast racer, top of the hill
dropped my sorry butt

yesterday, the fourth
passed two riding aero bars
one with tennis shoes

yesterday, the fourth
clif, cookies, cyto, water
my "three hour tour"

post-holiday work
this middle week off madness
lack motivation!

the group ride tonight
hope it does not rain on us
people will wuss out

the tactical insect sting
off the bike for days

'hundred eighty six
planning on september one
yesterday: 30

lazy wrote "doug sloan"
in his haiku; but i don't
