2012 was a year of running, but 2013 was focused much more on cycling. After treating myself to Decathlon's Triban 3, the most basic (which is to say cheapest) road bike I could find back then, I caught another bug, and winning an entry into Étape du Tour 2013 and climbing few well-known Alpine mountains has sealed the deal, and the rest is history.
It never gets easier, you just go faster.
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.
The bicycle's is the only chain that sets you free.
Combine bike racing, trail running, miniature golf and fight club into a single sport and you're halfway there. Add some mud and booze and you're starting to get the picture.
You don’t have to be a pro to enjoy the pain and glory of an epic climb.
When it’s hurting you, that’s when you can make a difference.
