The Randonneur's Creed

This is my bicycle. There are many like it but this one is mine. My bicycle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. My bicycle, without me is useless. Without my bicycle, I am useless. I must ride my bicycle true. I must ride farther than any cyclist who is trying to catch me. I must pace him before he drops me. I will....

My bicycle and myself know that what counts in this ride is not the speed we travel, the noise of our chain, nor the dust we leave. We know that it is the miles that count. We will ride...

My bicycle is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weakness, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its saddle and its frame. I will keep my bicycle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will...
