Hemingway on Bicycle Racing…

I have started many stories about bicycle racing but have never written one that is as good as the races are both on the indoor and outdoor tracks and on the roads.  But I will get the Velodrome d’Hiver with the smoky light of the afternoon and the high-banked wooden track and the wirring sound of the tires made on the wood as the riders passed, the effort and the tactics as the riders climbed and plunged, each one a part of the demi-fond, the noise of the motors and their rollers set out behind them that the entraineurs rode, wearing their heavy crash helmet and leaning backward in their ponderous leather suits, to shelter the riders who followed them from the air resistance, the riders in their lighter crash helmets bent low over their handlebars their legs turning the huge gear sprockets and the small front wheels touching the roller behind the machine that gave them shelter to ride in, and the duels that were more exciting than anything, the put-putting of the motorcycles and the riders elbow to elbow and wheel to wheel up and down and around at deadly speed until one man could not hold the pace and broke away and the solid wall of air that he had been sheltered against hit him.

Earnest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast, pg. 64-65.
