You knew when you planned the ride it would be a long day - a route stacked with grinding climbs & twisting descents, terrible roads with a good amount of who-knows-what-else thrown in. These rides aren’t most people’s idea of fun, but they sure are memorable, monumental, challenging. Is that why you keep going? You suck down another coffee & pull on your shoe covers to hold the weather at bay, it’s going to clear out & warm up in a few hours... Probably. Grab your Avant & do a quick check before rolling into the morning mist. No other machine could better help you endure the hours of rough, exhausting conditions ahead. It’s going to be a long day - & you love it.
