I am a novice cyclist. I have been writing for a while. I like both pursuits.
I also like that feeling right after a ride when your legs are so tired and you are eating a grilled cheese sandwich at a bar and drinking a really cheap beer and you are well aware you kind of smell like sweat, but no one seems to really mind, because they smell just the same. I like talking with cyclists about feminism. I like it when someone brings up something really interesting to think about. I like it when I don’t come in last in a race, but often this is the not the case, so I don’t really mind coming in last because at least I finished. What I don’t like is DNFing. I also don’t like that feeling when you are super hungry and about to bonk on a ride. That’s not so good. I do like that you are reading this blog and I love it when people comment and offer up tips. I also like it when kids wave at me when I’m riding and even more when they clap. I really like clapping.
