How To Be... ...cy­cling cool.

Bicycling (South Africa) - - Inside - By Fran­cis Cade

(1) Ever had an in­ner tube ex­plode in your face? I have. Use la­tex tubes... they’re just as fast. (2) Gotta do some­thing to earn those crois­sants. (3) Look fast, go fast! (4) Un­less your ride is pre­ceded by a swim, and fol­lowed by a run, al­ways wear long socks. Even in the case of the lat­ter, at least try and wear long socks. (5) Legs are op­tional. Ever rid­den a hand­bike? (6) No one can de­stroy the metal. (7) Been do­ing some much longer rides in re­cent months, and the re­wards are much higher the fur­ther you go. (8) Potato? (9) Old-school, less main­te­nance. Air­lines love bend­ing ro­tors. (10) Grab your bike, and go and ex­plore. The re­turn on in­vest­ment is huge in com­par­i­son to race re­sults. (11) Play it smart, and you can out­wit a faster rider.
