Bikes provide an efficient and inexpensive means of transportation, however they can also be used for fun and competition! Read more about different types of cycling games.
The drive to race and compete with each other manifests itself in almost every kind of activity, and cycling is no different. Eager children race their friends to the end of the block. Adults hold amusing bike races in silly costumes for charity. BMX riders pedal furiously around special built-up courses, and road bike races can span hundreds of miles over various types of terrains.
If you look into it, I am certain you will find organizations or bike shops in your city that hold races – some of which might be just right for you. Even if you cannot seem to find an organized race, why not start your own with your friends? If you like to get more information on how to organize a bicycle road race I can recommend this link.
No Competitive Cycling Games
Tip: Bicycle games are a great way to meet like-minded friends.
It’s pretty hard to stick to a strict training regimen when you’re the only cycling enthusiast in your social circle.
If you don’t know any other avid cyclists, sign up for some bicycle games in your region. You’ll meet some great people who may turn out to be your new training partners.
There is also ample fun to be had on bicycles without the stiff competition found in the “competitive race” environment. Urban hipsters hold scavenger hunts in cities, following clues, finding little prizes, and discovering different parts of the city – all while having a great time. One form of this biking event is the midnight – moonlight mystery ride. Your city just might have one!
During the midnight-moonlight mystery ride, bike riders meet after dark and follow a chosen leader – only the leader knows how the ride will unfold. BMX riders go out together to turn innocuous urban terrain into an endless cement sea of possibility!
Explore Your City and its Culture
These bike events can show how the bicycle can be a vehicle of inspiration and liberation. One can re-experience the city they “thought” they knew while becoming more fit – in addition to meeting other inspired people who just want to have a good time on their bikes! If you think that biking exercise is boring, why not try some of these fun activities? You are sure to find that being out on your bike inspires your mind as well as your body!
