If you want to remove yourself from all this negativity concerning bike racing for a little while, here’s a video of one of the reasons I ride. Maybe you’ve already seen it. It’s from a helmet cam I was wearing last year at Chequamegon Fat Tire. 2500 riders, mass start, point to point from Hayward, WI to Cable, WI. Even this event hasn’t been immune from doping, but this is about as close as you can get to pure bike riding enjoyment. I’ve won the race 3 times, and even though I flatted here, it was a great day on a bike.
