Now that would boost my average cycling speed for sure. Kinda the same idea as tying a hotdog in front of a dog and let him chase it, lmao

Any other Canadians out there who have an opinion of Ryder Hjesdal admitting to EPO use?,

 

Personally I think I reached the forgiveness limit years ago. The whole "Fess up when you're forced to" attitude leaves me a little dry in the mouth. I'm thinking there is enough new blood (oops) in the sport now where we can start being a little more liberal with lifetime bans.

A couple of good videos from the Netherlands:

 

Amsterdam, NL

 

Groningen, NL

One of my favorite quotes from the first video:

“On streets where there are no traffic lights, you’re really much more in touch with all the other cyclists on the road and with the drivers as well. People look at each other in the eyes. You’re much more in touch with humanity on your bicycle [here] than anywhere in the world.”

Amazing documentary.  Maybe I'll visit Amsterdam next year!
I see that most people rode cruiser bikes.  I kinda wish Oregon was like this, but there are too many druggies here to be a clean city.

I second that. Really amazing. Especially the "chaos".

 

The only problem is that riding like that in my country would very quickly turn you from three dimensional problem into a two dimensional one :eek:...

You have to drive a tank in order to be "higher in food chain" than cars.

It looks like I could survive in Amsterdam with just English?

Truth to be told, I got that Homo Sapiens  Cyclo Incredibilis on our cycling forum http://www.bicikel.com/ under ZELO LEPO ( Very Beautiful ) thread. 

There is a mix of great frames and "frames" - HA !How did it find the way to that thread is unknown - could be your neighbour you never saw on bike!

 

Here is a more realistic portrayal of "distractions" on our roads: photo gallery from Maraton Franja, our largest/longest going marathon or, as it is more known abroad, gran fondo if you wish to call it that. http://www.franja.org/fotogalerija.html In 2014, Maraton Franja http://en.franja.org/homepage.html hosts World Championship for amateur cyclists - as recognition as one of the gran fondos with the longest tradition and most participants in the world. 

 

However - although I never met a "distraction" as beautiful as the one posted, some - and not so few - on our roads came dangerously close...

 

This is our premium female racing team .

I don't know, but I'd love to go visit there myself.
