Oh yea? Well, I once raced against a guy with NO legs and...

Seriously, I did once encounter another rider on the trail who was missing both legs. He was riding a specially designed recumbent which allowed him to pedal with his arms. I remember thinking to myself that he couldn't go far because the arms just don't have enough strength in them. Imagine my surprise as I was heading back to see him still on the trail, not far behind me. He had traveled about 15 miles by then.
