A light drizzle fell from a crisp February sky this morning. It’s one thing to get caught out in the rain, but it takes a more intentional mindset to step out the door for a bike ride in the rain. It takes drive and passion and love.
Today my mind was months ahead of me, it was focused toward racing my bike against some really talented folks on Wednesday evenings in the summer, where the competition, conditioning, and camaraderie all conspire to create an unparalleled circumstance- the NBX Summer Training Crit. Where we show up and throw down. Where fitness built through winter months on the trainer and long cold slogs through wet conditions like today, materializes into pushing limits and clutching speed.
We are bikes.
