Way Too Much Fun
The ability to turn the cranks and propel a simple machine forward represents empowerment. Riding a bicycle can get us from point A to point B. It can keep us healthy and fit. It can connect us with other people through the shared thrill of a wicked descent that follows a lung-busting climb. In some ways, the bicycle is a metaphor for life, reminding us that balance is precarious, whether we are in the saddle atop two skinny wheels, or juggling careers, family, and the expectations of those around us. Racing bicycles brings all these elements to a new level–the thrills are more thrilling, the exertion is more exhausting, and the life balance is that much more precarious as we seek new levels of “extreme.” But in the end, the lure of those challenges is what keeps us going. We pour our physical and emotional selves into our sport, and the return is a pure contentment that weaves its way into everything else that we do.
It’s no secret that shared experiences are what make life meaningful. And the more intense the experiences are, the more meaningful they become. The intensity of racing bicycles brings out different elements in each unique personality that accepts the challenge. Some of us become neurotic and anxious during the hours leading up to a big event. Some of us channel our anger toward life’s frustrations through the pedals in a series of attacks. Some of us cross finish lines and burst into tears, having spent every last kilojoule in the name of victory. But all of us become our most true selves as a result of cycling. We grow together and learn to accommodate each others’ needs by sharing living quarters when traveling. We hold each other up and extinguish fires when volatile emotions are unleashed. We are all different, but we bring our best qualities when we come together as a team. That intangible moment of cohesion occurs when we roll out with a common purpose, and the strength of that feeling is what keeps us coming back for more.
