Disclaimer: I have not ridden by bicycle other than just around the block with my son since the fall. This commentary is strictly my opinion, and I welcome your thoughts.
Spring is here, well not really, curse that rodent named Phil. YOU GOT IT WRONG!
With snow in the forecast overnight, that nagging question creeps into our mind….Why does the Spring Racing Season Matter to Me?
Cycling is addictive, its like a toy a child can’t put down, we can’t get enough of it, we dream it eat it, and play with it every opportunity we get. After a long winter of suffering and training in the cold, wind and snow we are now ready to venture out and test our fitness, size up the competition.
We could just go our for a nice group ride, or a hammerfest training ride, by no that is not enough. So why do we pay the $35 entry fee, fill up or car, and abandon any other priorities to go race our bikes…in the eairly spring?
Here are just a few ideas?We just got our new costumes, and want to show them off to the world…
We are bored of beating up on and riding with our buddies and local cycling cres, and want dish the pain out on some unseasond racer whom you hope has less fitness than you…..
After a long cold winter you just need to get away from your wife, partner, girlfriend, boyfriend, husband etc…..
You migh get your picture taken, this will provide evidence to your co-workers, family, and friends that it is all worth it, the times away, the eating habbits, the obsession with weight……
You got a new bicycle and need to justify the $5000 you spent on it…..
You enjoy the double yellow line rule and riding around in a group that goes nowhere but in circles…..
You don’t care that it might be cold, windy and rainny…you are HARD if you do this…..
Hipsters don’t think its cool…your not a hipster
What other reasons might there be? Comment and I will add them….
