I HAVE A OPTIONS TOMORROW... The Thug Ride, The Dirty Ol' Bastard. If it's true you are what you ride... well, I might skip those... and it is true, but it's also true attacks and climbs may break my mind but names will never hurt me...
... which ride to do this fine winter's day?
One of the more amusing conversations I have with riders who aren't quite sure of the thugness or dirty'olness on rides goes like this...
Yeah, I want to do that ride as soon as I'm in shape in the Spring.
OK, but... this is the slowest time of year for that ride, it only gets faster in the Spring.
Yeah, I'll be ready.
... no chance in helk, I think to myself. No chance at all.
Winter is the time to latch onto the fast guys while they're going slow. It's the only chance most of us have. Come Spring, those DirtyOl's will be Thugging every pedal stroke of every ride.
Now is the time to latch and do what they do... and if you're lucky ride what they ride.
8 hrs sleep
No ride... Santa be bizzy.
