Thus I refute thee, Roslyn Dee!
Here on the West Coast it's too hot for words (a record 113 degrees in Los Angeles today), so I'll just pass on this cool excerpt from the excellent selection of cycling quotes at Quickrelease.tv:
"Ever see Audrey Hepburn on a bike? No, me neither. Catherine Deneuve? Nope. The very notion of either of them, surely two of the most elegant women the world has ever known, getting into the gear and clambering on board a bike is a full-frontal assault on beauty."
