does anyone prefer the good old days of cycling to today (le tour e.t.c)?
have been watching a few films about eddy merckx.for some reason i have been really enjoying watching the films of that time period in cycling (perfectly groomed hair * lovely steel road bikes,proper mutton chops e.t.c
there's just something magical about watching classic footage of past heroes racing their bikes.also the world looked a lot more optimistic than today too plus it looked like they were extras from the itallian job
i have nothing against today's cycling by the way,but the old footage just makes me wish i was born in that period to have experienced it (even though i'm 37
* i am not perfectly groomed at all/as unfashionable as they come too
edit they also all looked hard as nails also back in the day
