"...pushing's strangely satisfying. Everyone knows someone who treats an unrideable climb as a personal insult and throws himself at it repeatedly, suffering failure after failure and apparently confusing it with some sort of domination of the landscape, his bike, body and mind. In the meantime, the rest of us have sloped off up the hill for a virtual fag break whilst waiting for the novelty of smacking pedal against shin to wear off."
Nope I don't know anyone like that, oh no, not me, doesn't sound familiar at all. Uh uh.
Taken from Johnnie Pink's column in singletrack magazine, if you want to read the rest go buy it, it is rather good.
