You Just Have To Ask The Right Question

John tagged me. He did so politely so I'll play. It reminds me of a chain letter so I claim my right to be contumacious--mainly so I could use the word. So here we go...

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

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?
Yes. It works.

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?
One that took me to my destination. So I would get there.

What kind of sick person would force another person to ride one and only one bike ride to to do for the rest of her / his life?
A fever-wracked, schizophrenic worshiper of Gozer.

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?
Yes. Neither.

Have you ever ridden a recumbent? If so, why? If not, describe the circumstances under which you would ride a recumbent.
No. If I had one.

Have you ever raced a triathlon? If so, have you also ever tried strangling yourself with dental floss?
No, the planet Triath is well known for breeding mean-spirited competitors who excel at poor sportsmanship. Triathlons are well known for garroting their opponents with dental floss.

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?
A false dilemma. This is not an either/or situation.

What is a question you think this questionnaire should have asked, but has not? Also, answer it.
Q: Can the tagging end with this post?
A: Yes.

You’re riding your bike in the wilderness (if you’re a roadie, you’re on a road, but otherwise the surroundings are quite wilderness-like) and you see a bear. The bear sees you. What do you do?
If I'm hungry I eat the bear. If not, the bear lives.

Now, tag three biking bloggers. List them below.
See the question that should have been asked.
