an article about getting into bike racing

it is true
it is tough... it is awkward
it can be intimidating
it can be overwhelming

getting into racing or doing your first race can be a daunting experience

there is no easy discipline
it may be easier to find a grass roots mountain bike race that invites absolute beginners than a road race with a beginner category

or with cyclocross season here
the best option could be to attend a variety of cross clinics
ride and practice
at the clinics test your skills in a "mock race"
then get involved and race an actual race

racing is not for everyone
but for some of us... it is quite fulfilling

and it is not about winning... it is about racing
