Wind and Rain

winter seems to be here. it was very blustery today. i did some hardcore base miles. whenever it’s like this it’s worth considering what it really could be like.

“It’s a bollocks, you’re working like an animal, you don’t have time to piss, you wet your pants. You’re riding in mud like this, you’re slipping … it’s a pile of shit.”

Theo de Rooj, Paris Roubaix, 1985


To paraphrase Sean Kelly: get your kit on, and go out and do your ride. Then when you get home decide if it was too wet or not.
