Riders younger than the average might have to look a little further to find a club with a decent mix of ages. Of course there is zero problem riding with a group from the older generation, but it’s also nice to ride and train with folks closer to your own age, which can often be a tricky find when considering cycling clubs.
Among those who don’t ride bikes at all, cycling just seems an eccentric hobby that they’ll just have to look past, like taxidermy. Oh and prepare for plenty of people asking ‘why?’ when they uncover that you decided to ride 100 miles for fun on Sunday.
Cycling is for everyone – that’s the beauty of it. Anyone with access to two wheels can jump on a bike, breeze around the city or country and enjoy all the delights the velocipede can offer. That being the case, there are also some pretty key things you learn if you don the lycra a few moons earlier than the stereotypical road rider.
This is obviously a detail that affects every corner of the cycling world, but riding with more alcohol than oxygen in your veins is something the mid-20s cyclist can take in their stride. Carbo-loading for the Sunday ride with a 4am kebab, pulling on your kit after three hours of sleep, it’s a familiar routine for the poor self-control of youth, especially twinned with the peer pressure of friends who wouldn’t ride 60km anyway.
