Why Read This?

You don’t have to, of course. There’s plenty written about cycling to choose from elsewhere, much of it by vastly more accomplished, successful cyclists than me. There are coaches, trainers and even pro riders who have plenty to say about the sport.

So again, why read this? Why read anything I write about cycling?

Speedy Feet Featured Athlete for July 2018: Joe Lawhorn


Please join me in congratulating an amazing local athlete and bike rider, Joe Lawhorn, on his recent monumental achievement, completing RAAM.

On June 12, Joe rolled out of Oceanside, California on his bike as a solo participant in RAAM (Race Across America). RAAM is one of the most respected and longest running ultra-endurance events in the world. RAAM is seen as a pinnacle of athletic achievement not only in cycling circles but the greater sporting community as well. Unlike the three great Europeon Grand Tours such as the Tour de France, RAAM is not a stage race. RAAM is one continual stage, once the clock starts it does not stop until the finish line. It is the world's longest time trial and the ultimate race of truth. RAAM is about 30% longer than the Tour de France. Moreover, racers must complete the distance in roughly half the time, with no rest days. Solo racers must qualify to compete.
