This is a great bike site. On the “Rules” page you’ll find 87 (so far). I thought I’d find a lot of reasons for dissent, but after reading them, I must say, I agree almost completely. But I used to be a really hard-core rider, so I’m biased. Thanks to Mr. Dario for the find.
I like Rule #10:
It never gets easier, you just go faster.
Climbing is hard. It stays hard. To put it another way, per Greg Henderson: “Training is like fighting with a gorilla. You don’t stop when you’re tired. You stop when the gorilla is tired.”
I’m inspired. Maybe tomorrow I’ll ride the bike in the -10C weather. Or maybe not.
