Weekly Photo Challenge: Everyday Life

20120914-092559.jpg

I am not a cyclist, but these gents are, and I watched with a certain fascination recently as they went around and around one city block in the jewel mountain town of Canmore, Alberta, Canada.

A friend of mine quips that cyclists “pedal their legs off to give their ass a ride”, but I see something more. I see the pursuit of glory, the desire for achievement, and the need to overcome. I see an immeasurable human nobility in the pursuit of personal excellence.
