The Half-Fast Cyclists

Are you a regular cyclist that enjoys riding your bicycle but your primary focus is not racing or having the latest, greatest, ultra expensive equipment ? Do you get the feeling that the major cycling publications aim is mostly to the carbon fiber/ lycra spandex/ ultra high tech crowd ? We have reached a point where even what the cycling industry considers as an intermediate level bicycle is well over a thousand dollars. Many bikes sold nowadays are well over five times that.
I believe there are many people who enjoy cycling on a regular basis and take it seriously but are completely happy with more modest equipment. And there are many who take a more casual approach to enjoying the sport. So here is the tribe for fellow riders who are more apt to "stop and smell the roses". Or, enjoy a neighborhood ride, a ride on the canal bike path, an urban ride through the city, or a less extreme but no less beautiful bit of off-road singletrack. Maybe you use your bike as a cross training tool for another sport, or as a vehicle for weight management. Maybe you commute to work on your bike and then go Mountain biking on the weekend.
Hence the pun "Half -Fast Cyclists "; we who love cycling but don't envision ourselves competing in the Tour de France next year or winning the next Mountain Bike World Cup.
