Cycling nowadays is very modern - all high tech widgets and carbon fibre this and that. Cyclist magazine reflects this; you won’t find another magazine that covers quite so well all the latest high-end bikes and gear, and includes detailed focus sections looking at particular aspects of cycling. It is predominantly focused on road cycling, of the type that Britain has been so successful at of late – think Bradley Wiggins – the man who singlehandedly brought sideburns back into fashion, Sir Chris Hoy, Mark Cavendish, Laura Trott, Victoria Pendleton… Truly this is the one area of sport where Britain could be described as dominant.
The subsequent upswell of interest in cycling has lead to some people seeing it as the new way of experiencing a mid-life crisis. No longer do you buy an expensive sports car, and start wearing jeans and a jacket a la Clarkson, but instead middle aged men across the country are now apparently squeezing themselves into ill-fitting lycra, spending huge amounts of money on bikes and getting up very early in the morning.
And you know what? Why not. It’s a hugely healthy activity, you don’t actually need the super-expensive bicycles, and you’ll no doubt meet some interesting and friendly people. If this is the new way of expressing a mid-life crisis then the country is going to become a lot fitter as a result. Mind you, maybe you shouldn’t trust us on this;, our cycling takes us to the pub and back (as such negating any calories within the beer), albeit with a hint more wobble on the return journey. NB
