We all know the story of Lance Armstrong. Winning seven Tour de France titles. Losing seven Tour de France titles. And so much more.
It could spark a heated debate. But should it? Regardless of our opinions on the matter, it doesn’t really help us to get caught up in the drama.

It’s Not About the Bike
It’s not about the bike. Nor is it about doping or racing or winning the Tour, or claiming some KOMs on Strava.
It’s about the joy of riding. Camaraderie. Enjoying yourself. (You just happen to be riding a bike when you do it.)
