L’Eroica 2011

I generally don’t like reposting stories from other blogs because, honestly, if you’re reading this right now chances are damn good that you read the main bike blogs, and you’ve already seen anything I could think about posting, but this is something I couldn’t pass up. I was over at Fixed Gear Girl Taiwan and saw this amazing video of this years L’Eroica race. Take the time and watch this all the way through, it’s definitely worth it.

This is one of the most amazing things I’ve seen in a while. Something completely foreign to most of us. But a feeling that you can experience just by looking at all those bike fanatics being together. It’s all about the bikes, its all about the love for the bikes. It’s not about who wins and loses it’s just about who takes the time to participate. Like the race organizer said, above all it’s about the effort. This is something that I’d dream to put together in the states. There’s too much damn competition now’a days, and while the Sf Sprints races I put together have a winner and it’s about the competition, it’d be so refreshing to go to something where there’s just a passion for bikes in the air, and for that to be enough.
