Friday Group Ride #94
We’re getting into that season of gift giving. Every now and then our minds turn toward the things we’d like to add to our arsenal. And with the weather getting colder, we’re probably spending as much time thinking about bikes as actually being on them. ‘Tis a pity.
Ah, but to a cyclist, thinking about a bike may not be as good as riding a bike, but it’s clearly better than not thinking about a bike.
We obsess over our training, often our diets as well. We obsess over great riders, people we’ve never even met. So why shouldn’t we obsess about a bicycle, or any of its parts?
Equipment has been on my mind more than usual. I’ve got a bunch of equipment and bike reviews that got backed up for a host of reasons, stuff I meant to post as far back as August in some cases. But with holidays here, maybe running some of these can inspire a wife or husband to act and add something special to your quiver.
So the question is simple enough this week: If someone gave you one piece of cycling gear—a bike, a set of wheels, a pair of bibs, you name it—what would it be? To what have you been devoting your lusty thoughts?
