It’s downhill all the way, baby!
Blog Guy, I’m SO pumped! I’ve never been any good at sports, but yesterday I saw a reference to one that could be perfect for me!
That’s great. What is it?
You’re not even going to believe it. DOWNHILL bike racing!
Can you imagine? I mean, how athletic do I have to be to sit on a bike and steer the handlebars while gravity does the rest?
Um, before you register for the race….
Don’t bum me out. This is my one shot at being a jock. I’ll bet the hot chicks are ALL OVER downhill bikers! Somebody show me the start of the hill, baby!
Excuse me, I know you’re all excited, but I’m guessing that no one has told you how they stop these bikes?
Well, I guess, you know, hand brakes or pedal brakes or whatever….
Right. Whatever. Enjoy….
