Let’s face it, as cyclists we’re all a little strange with the way we’re always checking out each others legs.  The appearance of someone’s legs can be an intimidating yet deceiving sign of a rider’s form. Sometimes tiny stick-legs can produce an unbelievable amount of power and other rider’s monster sized tree trunks can only serve as a good draft.  You can never tell until the hammer goes down.

Part of a cyclist’s lifelong apprenticeship is to master the skill of recognising notable sets of legs.  I present to you your first test.

As always, have a great weekend, ride hard and ride safe.
