I have chosen to write my essay on comparison and contrast by writing about two sports I enjoy to compete at: crew and mountain biking. I have been racing crew boats since the spring of 1997. I began racing mountain bikes the following spring of 1998. I plan to point out similarities and differences in the two sports.
