    No, I have not. Would consider it with the Sativa one guy here speaks highly of.

    I don't use these, but if I did, I would only check the screen when it is safe to do so. That's the difference. With screens you can choose to be safe. When stoned you are eliminating the option of choosing to be safe.

    That only lasts for a few hours after the ride.

    What about the other 21 hours of the day?

    That is one enduring fact that stuck with me over the years! So true. Get the heart rate up, endorphins kick in, and the road is yours!

    MM, two tokes will loosen up the mind before the ride. It'll wear off in the next 20 minutes and you'll be in the zone. Save the stuff for later that night when you have to rehab those muscles. Cannabis has subtle pain relieving properties.

    I just read an article that claimed athletes have a better time smoking grass than non-athletes because we're already used to, and craving, the endorphin rush and that our repeated exposure to the rush results in an increase in our naturally occurring THC receptors.

    Maybe you should try it.

    Good point. What strain of weed is it that allows the user to control if he's stoned or not being glancing down or not?

    Why would you call it a 'need'?? Like you presume there exists some dependency or character flaw involved (ie prejudice). You also don't 'need' to use disc brakes either, nor ride on carbon, use Strava nor put electrolyte in the water bottle either.

    never tried weed before a ride myslef. might be worth a try if I 'want' to some day, not because I 'need' to (heck have only tried the stuff twice in my life)

    Why do you need to be high all day? Is your life really that shitty and unfulfillng that you need to get high to escape from it?
    I was just surprised at the number of comments where people seemed to need to have a smoke before enjoying a ride. Different strokes and all that I guess.

    I must've missed those comments. I don't remember reading where anyone said they "need" to get high to do anything.

    Some of us just enjoy adding a little extra "oomph" to our fun experiences. Doesn't mean that we "need" anything to do them. I had a 3 year window where I didn't use marijuana and I continued with every other aspect of my life just as I did before and since.

    How do you feel about people who drink coffee? It tends to make me jittery and lacking in focus. I usually don't drink it before bike rides but I don't denigrate the degenerate addicts that do.

    I feel like riding a bike after a few tokes or a beer or two is not dangerous.

    Now, riding with an endorphin buzz could be lethal.

    do you also interrupt those having wine with dinner, letting them know you can enjoy a meal without the need to drink alcohol? does it make you feel good or superior? does that kind of behavior give you a "natural high"?

    With weed, one can go along stoned and happy and immediately "go straight" when an emergency comes up. The mental equipment is not impaired. One can easily apply himself to meet the challenges. I drive really well "under the influence." Senses open up and situational awareness is enhanced.

    Alcohol works exactly the opposite. Drunks don't give a damn. They get dopey, lose motor control, and crash. If a stoner smoked that much weed, he'd fall asleep on the couch and wake up hours later refreshed, no hangover. Weed is right above caffeine in addictive properties. It just isn't that big a deal.

    You need(ed) a bicycle bong, mounted on the handlebars.

    Totally opposed to anything distracting me from enjoying my ride.
    Stuff that Garmin/Strava/mapping app/cellphone in your pipe and smoke it.

    Yup, that's my case as well. And my company loves to do drug tests on people.

    Today's weed is not GMO. It's simply the product of selective breeding.

    Even by your standards that's a real gem. Its a fact that weed impairs cognitive functions. Either you're an exception to science or you're posting stupid stuff on the internet.
