Fit Doesn't Have to mean Thin

Another interesting article from the NY Times (click the blog title to acess the article) - though I know as a cyclist less weight does make the hill climbing easier, the bigger riders take longer to get up the hill but always pass me on the way down. The article makes a point about there not being a "typical" body type for cyclists. I think this is true of the recreational cyclist but untrue of the racer set. For fun picture your cycling friends in a police style line up - could you pick them out as cyclists? Hint no looking for funny tan lines. One of my friends looks like he should be hanging with Babe the Blue Ox out chopping wood - not doing a 155 mile ride on his fixed gear bicycle.
