Lets see, 22 miles on the Lifecycle gains you 47 minutes on your Lifeclock - good job. You're welcome for the obscure Logan's Run reference. Carry on.

Yeah... I remember that vaguely.

Is a Lifecycle some sort of incumbent bike? At least you had a good day yesterday. Seriously, hope cross country is going well.

From Rob Murphy on Wed, Jun 27, 2012 at 08:20:17 from

NO! It's not some sort of REcumbent bike. It's a regular stationary bike that you have to sit up on.

Recumbant bikes are for old people and college professors.

I am going to choose not to be offended.
