I enjoy a good cigar a couple of times a week. It would be funny to light one up after a group rideB15serv said:haha I know this is so wrong of me but you should see the looks I get on my roadbike while wearing a full kit and lighting up a camel at an intersection. My riding buddy laughs everytime.
At least for anyone else who has to smell it, there's no such thing as a good cigar. My brother once put it well regarding a mutual acquaintence who used to smoke cigars "Is he still smoking those dog turds?" Cigar smokers never want to hear it, but the smell just gags the rest of us. EnjoyDaveG said:I enjoy a good cigar a couple of times a week.
Eddie Merckx was and is a smoker in case anyone's interested. A lot of the old riders used to smoke. Occasionally mind you but still a lot more than most people imagine.California L33 said:Now we know the key to Mario's success.
I've seen, and it seemed really odd, guys smoking while cycling, probably three times in year. These are day laborers, though, not hobbyists. I'm wondering if it's worse to smoke while riding because the smoke will go deeper.
