Everyone has their own story about why they ride. Some of us started as a part of rehabilitation from injury in another sport, others when trying to reclaim their health; some do it for the competition, while many do it for the simple joy of freedom and adventure. We’ve all got a story to tell about why we ride and we asked you to share yours.
Every fortnight, we’re picking our favourite story and giving the person with that story the opportunity to come on a luxury training camp with two full days of riding in Victoria, courtesy of Jaguar. More immediately, winners will also get a copy of Velochef. There’ll be six winners in total, chosen on the strength of their storytelling abilities, with entrants having submitted a short selection of words and a photo explaining why they ride.
Here are our first two winners and a selection of our favourite entries so far.
