Cycling – What Is Crit Racing and Why I Kind of Love It

by | Apr 14, 2021 | Podcast

Deciding to give cycling a try, I started a journey to find the best bike for me. In Episode two, I shared how my godson was the inspiration for me to actually compete in a  triathlon. Getting a bike was the first step in that process. 

After joining a club and attending a group ride, I realized that I had a lot to learn about the sport.  Major Taylor Cycling Club of Chicago members were instrumental in giving me that knowledge although I am still learning about the sport.  The way I learned about pacelines, and drafting is how I learned about  crit (criterium) racing.  Ignorance was bliss  and I kept coming back for more. In this episode, I share cycling race experiences and how invigorating it is . 

Starting a new sport is always challenging,  and hopefully this episode inspires you to delve right in, you could be surprised!

Episode Highlights:

  • Buying my first bike
  • Joining a cycling club and my first group ride
  • My first Crit Race and what I learned
  • The benefits of group cycling
  • The keys to Crit Racing
