Smoking on rides
This appears to be an Arizona thing.. half the ride reports I see involve some kind of stop for lighting up.

Is this just my habit somehow filtering into the internet? Or are people really lighting up?

P.S. Happy New Year.

Smoking?

yetisurly said:
why, exactly?
Interesting issue. This is my fifth year of riding in Arizona, year round, and I don't ever recall having anyone light up during a ride. Never thought about it since most of us work too hard anyway and smoking would not be much of a help for our cardio point goals.

I've seen a few oil cans now and then, but certainly nothing to excess.

Smoking pot is really, really bad. It makes you really, really slow and really, really lazy. And it's, like, totally illegal. I would never ride with anyone that smokes the pot because it, like, makes you bad, slow, lazy and illegal. It's like, so bad.

I'm clean and sober and think it's sending out the wrong message to young new riders
So if you have a beer during a ride, you're not clean and sober?

Should I be worried that my kids give me two Fosters oil cans and a flask for Christmas? Are they sending me the wrong message?

Please stop! Soon we'll see posts of fancy schmancy lighters built especially to mount on your bike...
And this is a bad thing?

Wait...I never thought of that. What made you think of that? Do you knock down the doobie more frequently than we would suspect?

Please elaborate. Or not. :D

While my interactions with Tiffany have been very few, I cannot imagine her passing the dutchie. :D

I plead the fifth. It sure is nice though. Just like the oil cans, wait until you get to the top to smoke out. Don't smoke too much and crash on the downhill though.

Climbing is made easier after a drag simply because the pain from the lactic acid is numbed to a certain extent. Going downhill is a sensation of speed and wind noise. I find that my body is far more relaxed (helps with the rigid bike) as well.

To each their own, literally, bring your own.

Fair enough. Coming from you, good enough for me. :thumbsup:

But I gotta wonder. Such genius....must be born from experience, right? :D

I'm still waiting for the L7s to come on with their catchy responses copied from their 8th grade health textbooks: Marijuana makes people lose their ambition, kills brain cells, is a gateway drug, lowers a man's sperm count, causes crime, causes mental illness, is more damaging to the lungs than tobacco, causes lung cancer and is more potent today than in the past...
