Gary’s been riding around socially, and has been doing fun rides for about 15 years. One day he rode past the Aurora Cycle Club weekend start point, and chatted with a few guys there. Gary asked if he could join in on a ride, which he did the following week. He hasn’t looked back since. Cycling is a total release for Gary. He thinks of few other things when he is on the bike, and feels really recharged after a ride. The racing appeals to his competitive side, even when he doesn’t really feature from a race finish perspective. Gary is always trying to do better. It gives him a tangible goal, and besides he quotes, “the gear is cool”.
