Many a new rider has heard the phrase 'you're not a proper cyclist until you've...', followed by some sort of ridiculous badge of honour such as scaring from a crash or owning a bike that's more expensive than your car. At GCN we think a proper cyclist is someone who rides a bike simply to enjoy riding a bike - although the cycling rites of passage in this video are easy to identify with for many a seasoned rider! Is your most expensive bike worth more than your car?
