AT THE TOP OF A LOCAL CLIMB TODAY I could see far across the ocean. There's a sense of freedom sailors have knowing the can pull up the anchors and escape in the big blue. We have it too, at least I think we do.
Most of us live outside of the dense metropolitan areas. Without much effort we can pedal beyond the concrete jungles.
Having done it many times, we become like the sailors. Knowing that if we had to, we cold quickly put piles of miles between ourselves and any potential problems.
We add to that confidence on days like today, rainy/snowy/blistering heat...
... which is exactly why I rolled out knowing I would quickly get caught in the storm.
To build that sense of confidence. To feel what nature can do. These are the reasons to ride when it's less than ideal.
The foul weather riders are the ones who are best able to get away... even if it's just to escape for a few hours to clear our heads.
These gloves won't save ya in the snow, but they are right toasty on the cold and wet days.
Use promo code ESCAPE to save.
