A Sunday in Hell. Documentary on the 76 Paris-Roubaix
These are the first few parts. There are 11 parts of it. I can't believe this has escaped copyright...for the moment.
I didn't want to start a new thread on them... but recumbent bikes...
This is a double negative... but....
Nobody doesn't look silly on them! That's all there is to it. Any riders of these? Why?
I know a few riders, but they are much older and will say that it is about comfort and less back pain.
Hey! Stop depreciating my appreciation thread.
How about we add this here
Coming to a store near you: chainless bicycles
Ya know.... was in DC this summer and saw this bike:
This is a bike built by the Wright Brothers. Frankly, I was shocked to see how little the design has changed in all this time. Pretty amazing, I thought.
Another pic (in case one disappears. I hate it when that happens)
Lance just linked this video on his Facebook page. Wow.

1. Love that Band of Horses song. Went to see them a couple years ago.
2. I'm not that huge a fan of trick cycling.
3. I'm surprised Lance isn't saying, "Now why can't that ********er break his collarbone instead?!
couple dream rides.
Cylingfans.com has a HUGE collection of videos from this year's Giro.
They also seem to be working on a collection of 2009 plus classic Dauphine Libere videos on their main page
Wielerflits, the Dutch cycling magazine, has a great YouTube channel that's worth checking out as well.
great interview with the fastest man on earth. BBC Inside Sport- Mark Cavendish
Speaking of cyclingfans, check out this awesome shot of the top of the Ventoux:
Makes me purr, that picture does. Shame that the server makes the picture smaller when you embed it. Here it is in all its glory.
Cyclingfans.com put up another beautiful Dauphine phot today, this time of the Col du Galibier...
Lance's final training video before TdeF09 and he encounters 8-year-old Liam wearing Livestrong gear on top of the Col du Columbiere. Fun stuff.
More vids from Cervelo Test team

Blood Sweat and Gears (on Garmin) is showing on the Sundance channel.
This got put up on another board I lurk on, and I just had to share.

Really cool old stuff - mid 70s Giro and Merckx. Watch out for the sanctioned mass larceny in mid-stage, and how racers used to get at their hydration back when men were men. Oh, to be a domestique in those days - just think about crashing with 4 or 5 glass liters of San Pellegrino in your back pocket. On second thought, don't.
that is awesome. i would hate to see the quill stems and teeth of the waterboys after a stage race. they must be destroyed
