One Is The Loneliest Number

Big Worm (being the true BASTARD that he is) sent me a chain blog. He fixes my bike so I have to do this. Lets all join in the fun shall we, kinda like a salsa dance contest in prison!


If you could have any one — and only one — bike in the world, what would it be? Hmm, do you know?


This one is easy. I never got to have the Schwinn Grape Krate with the five speed stick shift. I will regret that the rest of my life.


Do you already have that coveted dream bike? If so, is it everything you hoped it would be? If not, are you working toward getting it? If you’re not working toward getting it, why not?


No, they are to expensive on eBay.


If you had to choose one — and only one — bike route to do every day for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why?


That's cruel, but if I had a gun to my head, it would be Fern, Tom Brown, Cadillac. It's pretty much all I ride now anyway. Maybe that's why I am in a rut. You know a rut is deeper than a grave! (I'm so clever and colloquial!)


What kind of sick person would force another person to ride one and only one bike ride for the rest of her / his life?


Pete from Joe's Bike Shop. He's just mean. It's the rear coil, that would sour any one's disposition.


Do you ride both road and mountain bikes? If both, which do you prefer and why? If only one, why are you so narrow minded?


I do both, but since I got the zipper neck treatment, I only ride on the road under duress, and to beat Slade to yellow signs.


Have you ever ridden a recumbent? If so, why? If not, describe the circumstances under which you would ride a recumbent.


I thought I was going to have to because of my neck and I looked at them for a long time. I just think a recliner with wheels is fundamentally wrong, but I liked the drink holder. I rode one at Joe's once and it felt dirty....I can't talk about it.


Have you ever raced a triathlon? If so, have you also ever tried strangling yourself with dental floss?


No that would require running. Does it count if I strangled someone else?


Suppose you were forced to either give up ice cream or bicycles for the rest of your life. Which would you give up, and why?


I already gave up a ten year Haagen Dazs habit, I still get the dt's on the frozen food isle. It doesn't count if you eat it while driving, out of state...right?


What is a question you think this questionnaire should have asked, but has not? Also, answer it.


Extra crispy or original recipe?


Original recipe.


Now, tag three biking bloggers. List them below:

They don't all have blogs but they can do it in my comments;

Sinks- throw in a story about hang gliding with no kite!

Slade-no extra points for insulting yourself or acting slow.

Magnum-bring the crazy noise!

Gee, thanks WB for tagging me. Not event a blogger and still get picked on. Here’s what I’ve got to say on the subject:

If you could have any one — and only one — bike in the world, what would it be? Hmm, do you know?

The one the other guy is riding. It’s true, I could own the most expensive bike ever made with all the coolest components and I’d still want to ride yours.

Do you already have that coveted dream bike? If so, is it everything you hoped it would be? If not, are you working toward getting it? If you’re not working toward getting it, why not?

No, it’s not much of a racing bike. For the money seems like I should be beating that second place guy by more than 3 minutes.

If you had to choose one — and only one — bike route to do every day for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why?

Wow, only one. OK then, starting from Bikechain: Fern to Tom Brown down Cadillac over to the Alfred Greenway finding my way to the Miccosukee Greenway through Killearn finding Lake Overstreet to Red Bug then looping around Phipps back out to Overstreet; power lines to Like Oak and back to Bikechain. Sorry, I get bored easily and can’t pick just one.

Do you ride both road and mountain bikes? If both, which do you prefer and why? If only one, why are you so narrow minded?

Both, but MTB hurts less when you fall down and go boom.

Have you ever ridden a recumbent? If so, why? If not, describe the circumstances under which you would ride a recumbent.

No, but when I turn 100 I’m going to test ride one.

Have you ever raced a triathlon? If so, have you also ever tried strangling yourself with dental floss?

I’m not interested in a sport that does not offer a beginner men 40-49category.

Suppose you were forced to either give up ice cream or bicycles for the rest of your life. Which would you give up, and why?

I’d keep riding and eat frozen yogurt. Damn right I found a loop hole.

What is a question you think this questionnaire should have asked, but has not? Also, answer it.

Who would your rather ride a bike with Jessica Alba or Jessica Biel?

Who cares as long as you are riding one of them.

Thanks for playing along guys.

huh? I'm confused easily. Anyway, WB, I know where a rusty version of one of those schwinns is sitting and I know the owner of the property.
