If they are right,
then I now
why some humans choose
to be delusional, live a lie, etc. because riding alone, hunched deep down over a set of aero bars, sucks, plain and simple. Who want's the truth?
It is hard on you.
and it feels demoralizing while it is happening.
one of the many TT specialists out there in the Oregon Territory
comes flying by you on one of their $5,000 ($10,000) super aero bikes.
Everyone who participated suffered, especially R.Word,
who led the way for Cyclisme with our fastest time. This event was especially popular amongst the elder set of the Oregon Peloton. The Masters divisions were huge.
When arguments like, "it's good for you to ride alone" are all we had to motivate us, maybe some wondered on this trip "what are we doing?"
But soon, it all became apparent when Naiqwan won his silver medal.
He was so happy about that medal, he beamed a smile from ear to ear.
This is what Cyclisme and b.i.k.e. are all about.
But meanwhile, adding to the suffering, perhaps in my own delusional state, maybe exacerbated by the uncertainty driving down I-5 wondering if we were even going to get scored BAR points signing up "day of", I ran out of gas AGAIN, after the race, on the way to grandma's house.
So embarrassing for me, Randy and Malachi saved the day. With Randy driving off to Corvallis and Mr. Byrd hitting up the local farmers for some Good Samaritism we had plenty of petrol in no time. Wheew!
All's well that ends well.
