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.”
This is obviously a detail that affects every corner of the cycling world, but riding with more alcohol than oxygen in your veins is something the mid-20s cyclist can take in their stride. Carbo-loading for the Sunday ride with a 4am kebab, pulling on your kit after three hours of sleep, it’s a familiar routine for the poor self-control of youth, especially twinned with the peer pressure of friends who wouldn’t ride 60km anyway.
