I love cycling. I learned how to love cycling. It was not until my second time training for an Ironman that I began to really love my bike. Seriously. A quick indication was that I started to get mad at my boyfriend for playing around with it for no reason. A bit obsessive, I know. I could not (still can’t) help it. The majority of people would:
- think I am crazy,
- tell me that I need to work on my issues, or;
- ignore completely.
I totally get it. Unless you are in love with cycling, it is hard to understand why one can get so attached to
a bike bikes. Now if you are a bike lover, you are probably thinking: “NOT CRAZY, NOT OBSESSIVE. I GET IT!”. After all, we develop a great relationship with them. Whitey and Blanca keep me company at times when I cannot even handle my own thoughts. Why can you not love them? (Yes, I name them. No judging, people!)
During winter, we usually get bored with all those trainer sessions, inside the living room, staring at TV and re-runs of the same shows over and over again. Even the most dedicated people will tell you, it can get boring. Sometimes, I hit the gym to do my trainer session, a change of scenery keeps me motivated. Couple of friends mentioned “The Sufferfest” and told me it would keep me entertained. It is a bunch of videos that promise that you will be riding like you never did. It sound super fun and I am very curious to try it out this weekend. How about you? Have you tried The Sufferfest yet?
