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 :)

Softer is harder

Seletar, 48 km. I've not pumped my tyres for a few weeks. They are fat, squishy and slow on the road. It takes hard effort to crank up and I feel the burn when I cycle a steady 30 km/h to train for next month's Enduro (Bike-Aid's 24 hour charity ride). It's a good workout when I want to do hard work in a short time. Off-road, the soft tyres give a rather plush ride, unless the road is so rough, I bounce so much till my hands burn from keeping a firm handle on the bike. I guess some hardship helps to build up rather than tear down ...
