    I solidly have 4 of these and sometimes 6.
    This is satire, no?

    This is what I thought. I know at least one therapist who thinks biking as coping mechanism is just dandy.

    Which means that it's time to quit your job and beat her HAMR record, but by riding around Hains Point (except during Freezing Saddles).

    OK. During Freezing Saddles, I'll do the Arlington Loop, but only clockwise.

    Thread derail!!!

    So, Amanda is doing her HAMR ride on a recumbent- Do they have separate records for traditional bikes and recumbents?

    She rides the regular bike as well, but she's doing a lot of recumbent riding. There's not a distinction that I'm aware of for the record on type of bike. When I was there she was riding the recumbent but had two other bikes on the back of the car along with her dad's bike.
