Bicycle Riding

flyngsctsmnI’m sitting here at work totally bored so I’m watching a movie called “The Flying Scotsman”.
They are riding bicycles and going really fast.  That alone totally amazes me.  Why is it that when I ride a bicycle I can barely move much less go at high speeds?  I must be doing it wrong.  Maybe it is because I am not wearing the skin tight lycra?  It must really make a difference.
