Every once in a while you put in a good show when out on the tyres – maybe a Strava top ten or taking the win in an unofficial bunch sprint – which leaves your road-mates grasping for an excuse about their own performance. When you’re a whippersnapper, there’s one excuse that trumps all – youth. Older riders will always be keen to remind you of your fresh legs and lack of greys when it comes to a decent performance – you’re never fitter, you’re just younger.
On weekends, Legarreta goes out with a local riding group. “The guys at work were noticing that I was riding to work every day. They kept telling me I should come out with them but I was embarrassed and didn’t think I could keep up,” he says. It wasn’t until a friend convinced him to go on a ride (“no judgement, just ride!”) that he took the plunge. “I just about died and had to walk up most of the hills,” he says, but thanks him now “After that, I was hooked.” He looked up cycling Facebook pages and reddit groups. “When I start a hobby, I like to talk to like-minded people, so I always look for forums or groups to join. That also keeps him training hard. “I want to be able to keep up with my friends on gnarly climbs and bomb down mountains with speed and agility.”
