    Basics

    Not having ever been into competitive cycling (except racing the neighbourhood kids around the block ) I have no idea what a brevet, a stage, or a time trial is but I'd like to learn.... can anyone point me towards a website or two that explain these and other competitive cycling related things? thanks.

    Seriously tho, 'competitive cycling' yields 1,290,000 hits, I was just hoping you guys would point me to the cream of the crop.
