Masculinity and cycling

I’ve written a lot about masculinity and cycling but every once in awhile I find a cycling quote that just captures it for me.

Here’s today’s:

“Men invented war so they could be among themselves. In peacetime, they have bike racing.” — Gabriele Rolin

For past posts on sexism and cycling, see Sexiest pro cyclists and Kissing podium girls goodbye.
