Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I won my first race!

I don't mean i won my first race. I mean i won my first race.

Unfortunately it was a dream...It was one of the more fun dreams i've had in a long time though. It was a nice smooth hilly road and i was drafting some older guys for a while and then decided it was time to go, and off i went crossing the line by myself. My prize? A medal, and a bag of quarters (don't ask...i mean it was a dream).

When i woke up i decided that i needed to get into shape and race...that's ultimately my goal aside from weight loss. Anyone got any suggestions to that ends

It's pretty easy to win a couple laps on your first race

Bicycle
To dream that you are riding a bicycle, signifies your desires to attain a balance in your life. You need to balance work and pleasure in order to succeed in your current undertakings. If you have difficulties riding the bicycle, then it suggests that you are experiencing anxieties about making it on your own.

To see a bicycle in your dream, indicates that you need to devote time to leisurely pursuits and recreation.

Race
To dream that you are in a race, signifies that others are envious of your achievements and want it for themselves. If you win the race, then it denotes that you will overcome your competitors. Alternatively, this dream may also be an indication for you to slow down or take a different coarse in life. Often this dream can reveal your competitive nature and how you tend to measure yourself against others

Prize
To dream that you receive a prize, denotes that you have achieved some outstanding accomplishment or had made significant progress in personal endeavors. You feel pleased and proud of yourself

Money
To see or win money in your dream, symbolizes that success and prosperity is within your reach. Money may represent confidence, self-worth, success, or values. You have much belief in yourself. Alternatively, dreaming about money, refers to your attitudes about love and matters of the heart.

Medal
To see medals in your dream, signifies a reward and acknowledgement of your hard work. You are being recognized for your abilities and talents.

If you read Ride/ProCycling just before going to bed, there is a chance you will also win your first Euro pro race.

I had a dream like that, only in the dream I pulled my calf muscle while sprinting for the finish. The worst part is when I woke up, I had really pulled my calf in my sleep!

Wow what a neat dream!!! Hope your dream can come true! On the other hand, I dreamt I was running in the olympics around this tiny little track with lots of other people and no one was counting the laps so I was trying to figure out how they were going to determine the winner. I think your dream was much better than mine.
