He's ok if he's not the fastest on the block, but that doesn't lead him to treat cycling like an adult kickball league as so many do. Cycling is important. It's ok to train for it. It's ok to want to be faster, because that's actually more fun than sucking completely. At the same time, being fast doesn't make you better than anyone else, and he knows that, too.

best road ride ever

I think I had the best road ride ever today.

We had pretty amazing group. Everyone close in ability, but spot on in like mindedness about the ride. Dennisbike, Jake, Benny da Jewlar, Kid Chris, a very legal E-town, Sanford, Connair and I.


I hate to use the word synergy, but fuck, the group had synergy. We had flow, we had MOJO.  It was amazing. No one surging, or sitting in and attacking on the hills. No one throwing down a Lance Armstrong Look Back. A mutual level of respect, and work ethic- teammates and friends out riding hard, working together...
damn dirty crossers...

We weren't a paceline, but everyone went to the front.
No attacked the hills, but anger was applied to the pedals...
we were pushing each other, having a hard ride, but all the time, working the group...

The group had amazing flow, and we all worked hard, and I finished up a broken man, but stoked with how awesome the ride was....

damn that was fun...

I'm hoping this ride continues to develops into a nice weekly thing...

that was rad...

respect
