A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… or at least that’s what it seems like when I get on my bike nowadays.
Gravity. Not the film.
Reason For Doing This:
“Because it’s there … Its existence is a challenge. The answer is instinctive, a part, I suppose, of man’s desire to conquer the universe.” Someone else’s words but as good a reason for undertaking any challenge as there has ever been.
Le Cure Highlight:
Sitting in the sun enjoying the stunning alpine views drinking cold coke, trying to forget I was only halfway up.
The meadows halfway up the Col d’Izoard: pedalling forwards but appearing to travel backwards.
Climbs and headwinds really don’t go well together.Donate to Richard Viney
