The virtues of cycling, 2017 UCI Worlds

I came home from Sunday’s ride and checked cyclingnews.com for the results of the world road race championships.  This year worlds were held in Bergen, Norway.  Cyclingnews shared a helicopter-view of the last 4 kilometers of the race. It’s incredible seeing the landscapes—ships in harbor, fields, and rooftops, colorful crowds and cyclists racing around.  No other sport or activity infuses the physical world we inhabit on a daily basis with the effervescent qualities of the human spirt like cycling.  Among all the things cycling can do, certainly its ability to introduce us to the geography of the world, and show us the beauty of humankind in nature, carry incredible value.  Racing highlights cycling’s amazingly diverse and broad impact around the world.  It lifts the human spirit.  It’s a source of fun, learning, creativity and pleasure.   Artful brilliance.
