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.
Arthur Conan Doyle

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.
