Cycling has become far too macho for my liking

Asolutely agree with this article in The Guardian. Road cycling (i.e. racing) is the new cycling orthodoxy. From a journalist's point of view, pick up cycling magazine and its mostly racing, racing, racing. The cyclist who just wants to potter along gently through the countryside as a sightseeing adventure, stopping to take the odd picture of some interesting building or whatever, is barely represented in the cycling media. Instead we constantly get a long train of lycra-crad racers, macho discussions about gear and training and whatnot. Stuff that crap. That to me is not cycling, not proper cycling anyway....
