What Does Cycling Mean To You?

Last week, we had asked a simple question to our fellow cyclists on our #IAmVeloCrush community. We had asked them to tell us what cycling means to them. Also, we told them to describe that meaning in one simple word.

If you happen to gather a group of cyclists and ask them this, we are sure you’ll get different perspectives as to why they ride and what they feel or get out of it.

For some, it’s an escape from the monotony of the routine life; it’s a way for them to breakaway and to feel relaxed. While to some others, it’s a way to keep the body weight in check, to get fit and eventually, show off those legs.

It’s wonderful to see how one beautiful sport like cycling can mean different things to different people. Here is what our cyclists said when we asked them ‘What does cycling mean to you?’
