Knowing What Is Important

 I  follow bike racing, but I don’t usually write about it. But this story is much more about character than racing. I get satisfaction from helping other people on a group ride. Riding with a struggling rider and setting aside a personal time goal, does something good for both of us. So when I heard this story on the Outspoken Cyclist, I knew I wanted to share it. Jens Voight on his blog at Bicycling.com retells a story from the climb up Alpe d’Huez in the 2011 Tour de France. I will not retell it, but instead encourage you to go read it for yourself.
