I made the mistake of discussing a "group ride" with members of the "triple X" club while with some of my Alpine skiing friends in Utah this year. I had to explain that I was not refurring to the film industry and that people should get their minds out of the gutter (true story).
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
