Escape Velocity by S.J. Rozan

From Ride 2: More Short Fiction About Bicycles (Edited by Keith Snyder) (Typeflow, Inc. 2012)
A story that’s hard to describe. For all his life, the unnamed main character craves speed, movement, escape – all of which he gets from cycling. When he enters a relationship with a woman who prompts him to adjust his lifestyle, he does, for a while, but only for a while, until his true self forces its way out.
