There are three kinds of people in this world. One that does it because they have to do it, the other, because they want to do it. Then there is the third kind, the kind that lives to do it. This is the passion stream that runs beside the red blood cells of every cyclist in this world. There is no reason for us to ride, no distance too long or no hill too steep. This breed of humans take up challenges because there are no reasons for them not to take it.
