I'm there, I made it to where I wanted to be.

I set out this AM to do the quads and some X Country rolling hills and a few Intermediate level single tracks.

And It happened.

I passed my first regular rest stop, then my second. I stared my long climb and the next thing I knew it was over.
I was now "In Da Wind" flying down the double track, riding low and smooth.
Then came the punchy tech trail, done no problemo and I finally stopped for a drink of water, stopped for about one minute.
Then back through the cable and the long hard run to the truck, bout' three miles of dirt road.

I pushed myself hard, very hard. I arrived at the truck with an empty tank, I had nothing left, had trouble getting off the bike.
I walked it off, cooled down and then it hit me.
The bike was Invisible, I never even noticed it beneath me, The ride was clean, I was spent.

I'm going back there tomorrow.

It's a Zen thing

You get this or you don't
