Sometimes, when you start bike racing in March, it is difficult to keep bike racing until December. Then your legs stop working, you start sucking, and bike riding is not fun.
THEN THREE WEEKS LATER BIKES ARE FUN AGAIN, and you go on a 50 + mile ride mostly on a rail trail on a cross bike.
And then you eat a muffin with a ton of butter and have two cups of coffee so you can sit on Aaron‘s wheel as he tows you back to the greater Durham area.
Bikes are great. I love bikes.
