BTW: You might mention to somebody that teaching kids the real
sport of cycling, instead of the pseudo sport of let's
psych 'em up for foreign wars...rah, rah, rah, yeah team!,
while doing it on already paid for and maintained roads, would not
only be better for the kids' health, it would benefit the
