Example text

All of the post-1996 attempts have still involved unique, expensive, and not commercially available machines. Interestingly, more elaborate time trial designs are commercially accessible, and arguably affordable. Ironically, I propose that a bicycle has become exotic equipment in itself due to the continued technological evolution since 1972. Counting Down the Laps in Pursuit of Happiness I would like to pursue not just how technology is viewed generally per se, but also what technology embodies to us as users.

In 2006 we were two Danes who lined up with a local group of riders from Millau – a bike mechanic, a banker, and a butcher – and they showed us “hidden” bike roads in the gorgeous and mountainous landscape around the River Tarn in southern France. The basic cycle semiotics opens for richer forms of communication. Sundays are great days for cultural bike exchanges – you just have to check out where meeting points are situated for unknown yet soon-tobecome friends (in small towns, just ask some young sporty chap).

DYER 4/24/2010 7:18:27 AM record should be dropped and restored to its pre-2000 “ultimate” definition. This is based on the suggestions that the concept is unfair, has eroded interest in the discipline, and that the bicycle’s identity can make a positive contribution to the sport. Banking the Turn in Pursuit of Fairness The UCI does have responsibilities that extend far wider than our needs to remain interested in the record. An interesting sport should also fundamentally be a fair one. Without this, imbalances are created, meaning some riders are disadvantaged and that any record is meaningless and irrelevant.
