Cycling is like life. Cycling with no goal is meaningless. What meaning is there cycling in circles? Or living aimlessly? Meaning comes from direction and destination. Join me in my life's journey on a mountain bike :)

When less is more and more is less

Kampong Kaki Circuit, 60 km. Having completed the circuit in sub-70 minutes last week, I want to shave 60 seconds off today. I reduce the weight of my bicycle by a few hundred grams and pump my fat tyres to the limit to have more speed. I pedal furiously, have a few close calls on the road, hurtle downhill at almost 53 km/h ... only to end up with about 60 more seconds added to last week's timing. Bleah.
