Thank God he did!

Many cyclists lose their lives each year for smaller accidents. Cars in this country just simply DO NOT respect a bicycles place on the road.

Your right. I see that here in White Plains with motorcycles. Its almost like people are jealous, or upset that they can not weave in and out of traffic, like they can.

Does that mean people should get hurt? Folks are just crazy out here today.

hi,
one of my passions besides music and movies is riding my byke every weekend with a group of friends some of them are pros riding in pro teams in my country Portugal and outside in Italy and Spain.
I have a trek madonne oclv110 with corima aero rims and shimano dura ace components.
one of my friends that use to ride with us is the great Sergio paulinho last year in Discovery team and this year at Astana if you dont know him he is the guy that was second at the olympic games 4 years ago, behind Paolo Bettini.

I bet you have some beautiful rides where you are. I know if I lived there I definitely would be invested in cycling.

My wife and I did a tour of the Alentejo region of Portugal on bikes last October. I was nice rolling hills, but I suspect it gets harder up north. That Madone is a sick ride. I have been rifding my bike pretty regularly again and of course start to shop for upgrades....

I want one of the new Selle SMP saddles, they are so cool looking and really comfy for a bike saddle. I also have looked at the Sram Red components, but can't see getting rid of my 2004 Campy Chorus for a new set of components already... Unless I could sell them on eBay....

the place where i live is fantastic to ride itīs 20 miles from lisbon to the hills,you have to climb a lot but itīs so beautifull,we go all around Sintra,Mafra,Ericeira,and Cascais,thatīs the place where i live,normally the ride is from 90 to 110 km,sometimes a litle more depending if we are training for some bigger ride up north of the country in serra da estrela thatīs our biger mountain 2000 metres high 23 km clibing with sometimes 12%...
Alentejo itīs not so hard but still great rides there.

sometimes we have problems with people in the cars,i think itīs the same problem all over the world,the best place to ride is france,belgium and holand.
