Why Race Your Bike?

The answer, finally and finely articulated. Unfortunately, I didn't write it:

Bike racing solves many challenges: it gives purpose to physical activity; it abolishes boredom and inspires confidence since every race becomes a tactical puzzle that brings success when solved; even a short race drains the mind of everything else except racing; and racing breeds camaraderie because, to a compassionate racer, the line between friends and rivals becomes indistinguishably blurred since in reality, racing convenes a bunch of like-minded people who have a funny way of getting the best out of each other, both on and off the bike.


  1. Excellent description, who was the original writer of this?

  2. It came from an article from usa cycling. Thats all I know.
