Recommended: Race Calendar by The Inner Ring

Whoever said bike racing was dead?

This is the 2013 race calendar, easily downloadable to most of your devices (organizer, phone, computer and other devices), created by The Inner Ring.

Pro Cycling Calendar – Download and Update  

I say it is sort of overwhelming. I am glad I mostly follow the Spring Classics, Grand Tours, Tour of California, USA Pro Challenge, Worlds and a few other extremely picturesque races. The rest of the time I want to spend being at the races or riding my own bicycle!

I look at this calendar and realize why I would never want to be a professional cyclist. They are not hanging around eating pasta and suddenly show up at the Giro for a good ride. These guys are flying all over the world, lugging their stuff, away from family, racing their hearts out. Now that is admirable hard work.
