If it's one thing that Bnet has taught me is that riding a bike is more than just riding a bike. To have a second family who signs up for this mutual love for suffering with you is amazing. The climb was never as big as you thought, point b was closer than it seemed, and those mountains only get easier from here. It’s enjoyable beyond words. I ride and race to learn, learn about myself, practice to fully live in the present. To be aware of my surroundings and to see what it's like to really push yourself to the edge with your friends by your side. I probably won't race till the day I die, but I know bikes and this team will stick by my side till the end.
