“Cycling is just like church – many attend, but few understand.” A very good quote indeed. Whether it’s riding leisurely around town, on the trails close to home, or racing on the road, cycling is a complex endeavor that takes on its own meaning for each and every rider. There are a lot of different dynamics in each and you may know what each consists of but the feeling and meaning each gives to a rider is different. Understanding cycling as a whole can be strived toward but it’s one of those things that can never be fully understood. You can understand parts of it, particularly that of your chosen discipline be it mountain, road, commuting, or leisure, but few understand nearly all of it.
