Not as competitive as i am when i'm running, and NOWHERE near as competitive as Mulletus Maximus! .
How competative are you with cycling?
Well it seems that the majority on this forum are competitive indeed.
I might start being like this if it improves my riding somewhat.
Steel City being the start.
I'm the least competitive person here....
I'm definitely more contemplative than competitive..
Having said that I prefer to finish every ride feeling that I gave it everything I had..
I like a challenge, and do enter some local XC races (and the odd caper further afield - Kielder 100) but my fitness level is to cycling what boxing gloves are to a concert pianist (30 years of smoking - quit 2 years back) so I respectfully tend to challenge myself, and courteously get out of the way when getting lapped sometime mid-race! Racing for me allows me a chance of riding somewhere different as fast as I can manage, with a bunch of like-minded folks. I'd like to make the time to train more, but I'm enjoying my kids growing up too much to worry about it!
