|Never underestimate one of these.|
But that's not what this is about. I want to say that I really admire people that are passionate about anything no matter how silly because those people are much more interesting than your average boring person that does nothing different from one year to the next.(How many years do those people think they've got to do all those interesting things out there?). One of my friends recently got kicked in the head by her horse ( boy I bet that hurt!) and I made some comment about how my bike wouldn't whack me when I wasn't looking. And she said that at least her horse loves her.
WHAT AND MY BIKE DOESN'T LOVE ME!!
It's great having a bit of healthy banter with people that care about something. A few people that I know are passionate enough about cycling to say that they will cycle with me on bits of my global bike race next year. So at this stage I may well have company across Aussie and Canada! I don't think there's anything in the rules against a bit of wheel sucking. In fact since this is the first Global Bike Race I don't think there are any rules?
No doubt this time next week a package the size of a chilly bin will turn up at the bike shop packed with preliminary race rules.
|The South Americans have entered The Race.|
I notice from the entry list that Brazil, Spain and the USA have entered their best. Things are getting tricky. Whereas before most of the contestants were from the UK and Isle of Man and I felt assured that I could gain time by riding while the others where having 11zees , lunch break and afternoon tea zeez now I have to contend with people that will not ride to union rules and will also not burn in the mid day sun! I will just have to be more resourceful.
