There are several different specific events in cycling. In Track Racing bikes have a single gear and no brakes, in BMX racers go up and down hills and ramps on their bikes, and in road racing the racers can cover over a hundred miles in one day. Cycling is popularly thought to have originated as a 1200 meter race on the 31 May 1868 at the Parc de Saint-Cloud, Paris. The "scoring" per se is the position in which the person came in reaching the end of the race. The rules are based on which specific event they are competing in but the only main rule is , that they have to stay on the track, and (usually) reach the end. The equipment for this sport usually consists of a helmet, and protective gear near the joints. The amount of people cycling is usually about 20-40 but in big events such as the Olympics, the amount of people can be upwards of 100 people on a single track! The leagues in cycling can range from amateur, to professional, to international, to Olympic games. The length of these races can be extremely long, and such a valuable tactic of conserving energy is needed, as if you try to go your fastest you will get tired and lag behind.
