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.
In January of 2018. with the miles from his commute adding up, Legarreta began searching for a new car that he could drive to the train station. That’s when a work buddy suggested he buy a bike instead. Legarreta wavered at first, but eventually gave in and decided to ride the train partway and bike the rest. Along the way, he developed a love of mountain biking.
Kids have an ability to absorb varying levels of workload, so it’s very individual. As a parent, the main thing you want to watch is their head – their motivation, and enjoyment of the sport. So many kids get to their teenage years and if they’re not really in love with the sport, they find an easy exit.
And it doesn’t count if you use it to hike up a mountain, swim the channel or pound the streets in search of an entire new wardrobe. Make sure it’s high quality rest, and keep hydrated. Be as conscientious as on training days – tell yourself ‘my purpose is to rest properly’. You can not ride a bike, but go hiking, walking round town or swimming – that’s not rest.
