How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.

Thanks for the link. Nice article, without the frequent "look at those weirdos on bicycles" undertone that many general press articles have.

Everybody's got their thing, but I've always wondered that once you reach the point where you are randonneuring, why not just go out for a really long ride? Why does that undertaking need any organization, scoring, patches, any of that stuff?

@ ChinookPass --The social aspect to randonneuring is important for some folks. Most of my rides are solo, and I prefer it that way, but I have a couple of friends who basically won't ride by themselves. For me, the idea of riding with a large group, many of whom can't ride a straight line, holds no attraction.

It was a good article, however. I'm all for anything that presents cycling in a positive light.
