CLOSING TIME

TODD BROWN hero


SO, YOU'VE BEEN WORKED TO THE BONE.  Whatta ya do now?  When you feel like you're nothing but a skeleton, like there's no more energy to give, but you know the work is done?

... then one of your crew fires off a text like this...
Just like that the rejuvenation begins. 
It's like magic. 

I feel the energy swelling in my chest as it prepares to suck up massive amounts of oxygen.  My legs tingle with eagerness.  My eyes close and I see glorious single track being gobbled up as my knobbies scratch and claw across the decomposed granite.

With friends like that, how can we ever get old?
I ain't no skeleton!
It's closing time,
Time to ride!
