And you promise not to do it the Texans way of throwing a rope even if you're so good at it, right, lol.

Spring is here (well, at least it is in the south) and my thoughts have turned to cycling so I may not be around as much until the cold winds blow again. Im moving into a new area of cycling called ultra cycling, which are rides over 100 miles.

Wow, another cyclist :-) ! Are you a mountain- or a road biker? Personally I am looking forward to the cycle season when I can be back on the road again. Still about -10C in Stockholm and more snow on its way. Spring seems far away :-( ...

Yay for a cycling thread! I'm with you, hackeman -- I hope this snow and cold will go away soon so I can get to biking again!

I've been following this thread as much as possible. I use an IPod and am having trouble being thrown off. Hopefully I'll be able to post my full message. I loved the contest and wish I had been able to be a part. I just received a laptop and should be able in the future!

Barry, you do rock and have been a great help to me personally. I'm so glad you are staying on the forum and I'll miss you during your rides. Try to stay on when you can. God bless you and keep you safe on your ride.

Thanks Barry for setting up the contest. thumbs-upCongratulations Naska for a great job and kudos to ALL the participants -- you all did. I LOVE THIS FORUM as well as all the members!!!

If this isn't the most obnoxious of video's, it certainly must be in the top "X" of them.

Here's a my tribute to all you Cyco-Liners  (I had to put Psycho in there, of course)

 

Personally, this sounds more like a sick cow, or train, but hey, music is expression, right?

well Barry, I for one enjoyed your contributions and you will be sadly missed around here. Just as many will be when they depart for places unknown.

Enjoy your studies and as usual, life is a journey not a destination!

We're happy that you still pop in every once in a while.

We'll see about future contests. I have some ideas. Will lay off the judging part though. LOL
