Can't We All Just Get Along

I saw this great video over on the blog Takeover LA and thought I would share it here.

The video is a quick promo for the 2014 Tour of California.  In the video, cycling superstar Peter Sagan is featured riding on a street in sunny Southern California when he gets joined by a sweet group of other cyclists.  After that they just cruise.  What I liked about this so much is that it shows a bunch of different types of riders and style of bikes just riding along and having fun on a bike, the way it should be.

If you've even been on any of the popular cycling blogs or forums you've probably seen the nasty comments that some cyclists have about other types of riders.  Whether it's the roadie calling a fixed gear rider a hipster or a an enduro rider tearing into people that ride fat bikes, for some reason there are a lot of negative vibes out there.  

At the end of the day, we're all cyclists and regardless of whether you prefer to ride in a peloton or do tricks on your BMX at your local skate park, we all like to have fun on 2 wheels.  I always find it funny because chances are we all started off on the same little Huffy with training wheels. Back then it wasn't about how your bike looked or what clothes you wore; It was about the ride.

Do you think Peter Sagan learned to ride a one handed wheelie on a carbon road bike?  Enjoy the video!
