Just that the good fortune to visit Egypt, Turkey, Greece. found cyclist in every city, town, and village. Some folks relied on their bikes for work, others just for the fun. Some crazy riding in Turkey! Nerves of steel on those mountain trails and roads. Cycling bridges launguage barriers. One dude had a very cool Mt. Bike with hydrolic disk brakes sitting in his store. When he saw me admiring it his ear to ear smile said everything.
