My list:

Freedom: Countless miles put in;
- by dropping off the car at the garage and riding on to work or home
-seeing a road and wondering where it went
-too icy to drive to the grocery store, take the mtn bike
-short cuts through traffic jams

Top Gun Syndrome
-You know the feeling when everything is right and your need for speed is quenched, at least for a while

Clean air, sweat and a clear head

Breaking the mold

Memories of good times and great friends and even more to come

Being 40 years old and asked if your 30

A 30 inch waist

OK, gotta give some credit to Mom and Dad for the genes and most of all God for the ability that so many will never know

to the Seattle-area traffic report on my headphones while blissfully bike-commuting to work! Suckaz!

Realizing that it takes the same if not less time to ride to work than it does to take the bus!

Those Euros and their use of sex in marketing. Good stuff. Don't know if it's been changed, however, last time I went to the Pinarello site I wasn't sure if I was looking at their site of the beginning of a porn flick.
thanks for the heads up nmafrican

I think the bike is way to small for her. Ugh! I am getting old. That is the first thing I thought when I saw this picture. What happened to me? Oh! I remember, married with three boys. If I buy a Fondriest, do the girls come with it?

I've always adored the feeling of cycling. I figured it was almost as good as flying. But now I'm also a pilot, and I think cycling may be even better: flying does not offer the freedom it once did (especially around DC, post-9/11), and it comes with a big guilt-trip for the expense and resources used.

I love to conquor miles. I like doing trips long enough to show up on a large-scale map.

now you know why that is my online name ;-)

Really though that wind on your face feeling is the best isn't it?

It always puts that smile on my face....The same smile I remember when I was a kid on my first stingray bike ;-)

Also I agree with the flying a plane comments......Although the last time I was up in a sailplane it was way better than any prop plane could ever be. But still cycling has a satisfaction that nothing else has ever matched..for me.
(hobby wise of course ;-)
