Sam R., Brookline, MA
"The reason I ride my bike is, without question, competition. Very few things bring me more joy than slicing my way through the final 200 meters in a race for the line. It's a moment of complete silence and total chaos all rolled into 35 seconds of blinding speed. I can't replicate that feeling no matter how hard I try, and it is just as exciting as the first time I did it."
