I read this stuff, and everybody's talking about saving grams and maximizing fitness (if you don't count the Krispy Kreme thread) and the lightest wheels and stuff...
But you know, sometimes I get on the Atlantis or my single speed or my mountain bike and just...ride around. No plan, no pulse counter, no intervals. It's pretty nice.

are when you just get on your bike and go. Sometimes, it's nice to not plan your route ahead of time. Just go and enjoy the scenery. This doesn't necessarily mean that you can't ride hard either.

That is pretty much the way I ride. I go the same direction every day but when I hit a section of road there are several ways I can go and I never have anything planned. Sometimes it's fun just to roam around and keep track of miles with the old computer. It's also easier now as the weather isn't so hot. Soon I'll be dreaming about those warm summer days..

You must train.
You must spend ridiculous amounts of money on high tech crap that makes you "faster".
You must spin.
You must wear proper "attire".
You must eat steam baked tofu chips and fat free carb free sodium free eggshell omelets.
You must "be the bike".
You must practice your form.
You must scratch build your own headset from things you find in the gutter.

Geez...frivolous riding for fun?!?!?! NEVER!

Now you'll excuse me as I head off to the pub on me bike for a scotch egg and some stout.

Cheers!
