- Great STW quote
Isn’t that just low-rent, google-translated, euro-market speak for a generation that wouldn’t recognise good writing if it knocked on the door and dumped a pile of similes all over the cat?
And you wonder why mountain biking has no literature and a culture composed mostly of shallow, identikit, videos of inarticulate American yoofs in ridiculously baggy shorts ‘sending it big’. How do you even start to parody a culture where the leading role models talk about ‘feeding off each other’ while a keeping a straight face and totally without cutlery?
Anyway, I give you the equally hackneyed tee-shirt phrase: if I had to explain, you wouldn’t understand. Twice.Posted 4 years agoKunstlerMemberPosted 4 years ago
The bicycle saves my life every day. If you’ve ever experienced a moment of awe or freedom on a bicycle; if you’ve ever taken flight from sadness to the rhythm of two spinning wheels, or felt the resurgence of hope pedalling to the top of a hill with the dew of effort on your forehead ; if you’ve ever wondered, sweeping bird-like down a long hill on a bicycle, if the world was standing still; if you have ever, just once, sat on a bicycle with a singing heart and felt like an ordinary man touching the gods, then we share something fundamental. We know it’s all about the bike.CougarSubscriber
i’ve given up trying to explain to non-mountain bikers why i dedicate so much of my time to biking
There’s a skydiving adage,
“Those who do, can’t explain. Those who don’t, can’t understand.”
And lycra makes me feel special ‘down there’.
I don’t need lycra for that, I’m special down there naturally.Posted 4 years agoboltonjonMember
“Each ride brings new sensations dictated by weather, riding partners, bike performance, trail conditions, trail choice, intensity of the ride and this changes the way we feel”

It’s a nice phrase in the article, but not one I’d use or fear of coming across like a nobber (this might be due to where I work, BS bingo in full flight with no sence of what is being said only how it sounds it drives me nuts)
I just smile admit its just mucking about on bikes and I’m addicted!!Posted 4 years ago
