- Ralph Waldo Emerson
My thoughts on Lance, summarized by the quote above.
“Nature is an old lady with few friends these days, and those who wish to make use of her charms, she rewards passionately.” - From Tim Krabbe’s The Rider
We gladly greet the month of December today with a brisk morning spin. We wiggle our fingers like air-guitarists as we rest our hands on our handle bars, in an attempt to keep the blood flowing in our gloves. We replace our woolen and/or Belgian knee warmers with full-on thermal bibs, because let’s face it, we’re not Belgian. We also learn to accept wind as a training partner for the next few months, since it won’t be leaving us any time soon. We will continue to ride along, winter.
