    Not with that yellow jersey. Yellow is fast.

    I'd rattle-can that bike orange, toot sweet.
    ^This.

    Because orange is the fastest color.
    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    Wait, is this one of those internet things, like a few years ago when everyone was wondering what color some dress was?

    On my monitor, the shingles are grayish, the siding is powder blue.

    Where can I find the full set of rules? I didn’t realize the valve stem cap was such a faux pas. I usually just wait to lose them organically.

    I keep them on (and even replace them if I lose them) just to p!ss off those riders who are obsessed with "The Rules".

    Sleeveless jerseys are only acceptable in San Diego. And that's only because everybody there is a triathlete.
