Cyling Bucket List Asks Which Suffering Is Worth ItBy Michael Frank on November 22nd, 2011
Would you race the world’s toughest “road” cycling contest, Paris-Roubaix, if it wasn’t your job? Tour de France champion Bernard Hinault (pictured), hated the race, and once he’d won it he bailed on going back in subsequent years. But most cyclists ride for love, not for money, and dream of racing/riding on famous courses, even if we have to spend our own money and time to do it. So the blog Red Kite Prayer asks what’s on your bucket list and why, what’s really worth it, and where’s that line between worthwhile suffering…and just suffering? It’s worth indulging the fantasy, because you won’t do it if you don’t dream of doing it first.
