Tagged, I'm It

If you could have any one — and only one — bike in the world, what would it be?

The one I’m on, duh.

Do you already have that coveted dream bike? If so, is it everything you hoped it would be? If not, are you working toward getting it? If you’re not working toward getting it, why not?

The one that other guy is on, duh.

I thought I had it when I acquired the IF, but the other day I spent the afternoon dreaming about the $35 blue Penn Cycle’s Trek 10 speed at the rummage sale 5 doors down. I spent most of the weekend chasing a very attractive orange IF. Then there's that big dummy I keep seeing around town - I wonder what his bike is called.

If you had to choose one — and only one — bike route to do every day for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why?

A 7 to 10 mile section of the Centennial Trail in the Black Hills, preferably with Aspen trees. From my home to work.

Do you ride both road and mountain bikes? If both, which do you prefer and why? If only one or the other, why are you so narrow-minded?

I ride both. I prefer the one that’s right for the job at hand. My favorite jobs are city and singletrack so I lean mountain but my favorite bike to ride is a single speed road bike – when the tires aren’t flat.

Have you ever ridden a recumbent? If so, why? If not, describe the circumstances under which you would ride a recumbent.

When I'm 50 I'll ride recumbent.

Have you ever raced a triathlon?

Why would I want to suck at three sports?

Suppose you were forced to either give up ice cream or bicycles for the rest of your life. Which would you give up, and why?

Ice cream. Easy.

What is a question you think this questionnaire should have asked, but has not? Also, answer it.

What two sports should replace running and swimming in triathlons? Disc golf and ping pong.

Who started this tagging thing?

As far as I can tell CycleSD started it this time.

What is my favorite thing about cycling?

The cycling.

Now, tag three biking bloggers. List them below.

Three. One's enough. Sioux Falls' newest biking blogger, introducing - South Dakota Cycle-Ogy

Thanks for the disc golf and pingpong plugs. I think the new tryathalon has potential.
