I wasn't exactly tagged, but I read a blog everyday "Fat Cyclist" and he said if you want to be tagged, so be it. So I am taking his questions he made up about cycling and I will answer them to the best of my ability. I then will choose 3 random bloggers to be tagged as well. They then have to post on their blog, otherwise they're fingers will turn to worms.

If you could have any one — and only one — bike in the world, what would it be? I would say right now it would be my old yet newly converted single-speed Schwinn Moab. 1997 model. It is and has been a great bike with nearly 0 problems. I have upgraded nearly nothing and it cruises along the road just as nicely as the dirt. It looks sleek and nimble, like me!

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? I would say that I do have the dream bike. Although, I can't say for certain that it will always be my dream bike. In a way, I like all of my bikes and I always want more bikes. Mainly because each has it's own individual characteristics that I enjoy. Some are fat and heavy and go slow and others are very lightweight and quick. It all depends upon my mood.

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? I would definitely say the Centennial Trail in the Black Hills. It is over 112 miles of single track and it differs greatly from the Northern hills to the Southern. It would be the perfect variety of lazy singletrack to the most demanding technical riding. And I could do it every day.

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? I'm not sure, but it's a great question and I feel I've come up with the perfect answer.

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 narrowminded? I do ride both. I enjoy mountain biking more because it's better with friends. I enjoy it more because there is more scenery and you end up going where very few people usually go. My road riding usually consists of lunchtime rides when I can't go ride the mountain bike.

Have you ever ridden a recumbent? If so, why? If not, describe the circumstances under which you would ride a recumbent. I have never ridden a recumbent. I really can't say I want to either.

Have you ever raced a triathlon? If so, have you also ever tried strangling yourself with dental floss? Nope, but I want to.

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? I would have to say ice cream. I think about bicycles every day. I only think about ice cream every other day. I can't sit and look at ice cream and wish I was ridding it, but I can do that with bikes.

What is a question you think this questionnaire should have asked, but has not? Also, answer it. What size of shoes do you wear? 13 US or 47 or 48 European

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? I freeze.

Now, tag three biking bloggers. List them below. I don't even know if anyone reads this blog. But, what the hell.
