Things I See 8


The Human Bicycle Race

All dressed alike in their own choice of colour, before they all raced in the same direction, they were all focussed on their own thing.

Helmets on, shining bright, working the machine, eyes on a goal.

Beautiful, really, what people can do.

Why don’t more of us do more more often? Why don’t we have cycle races where part of the challenge is free food delivery to people en route? If it’s physically possible and there are people who want to pay to enter a race to cycle, why doesn’t this exist as a thing?  Why doesn’t every athletic event have a philanthropic aspect? Why don’t the Olympics not only celebrate individuals and nations talents, hard work, and success, and show us what humans are truly capable of? We can run fast and jump high, we can swim and do backflips. We can do this for the love of it, but can we do it for the love of others? What are we running fast for? Why don’t strong man events lift big blocks to build a pyramid, or some other beautiful thing, instead of lifting a lorry to put it down? Why don’t they lift something we need to be lifted, to put it in a higher place? Why don’t we have regular boot camps and obstacle courses where one of the events or stops on the circuit is litter picking, or wall repairing, or lawn mowing? Why do people pay to run on a treadmill or do an army-style bootcamp when they could run to a place to help a person? I know some of these things exist and happen, but why don’t they happen more, why don’t they happen bigger and louder? Is it possible? Why isn’t the egg and spoon race a race to someone who wants to eat an egg?
