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.
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.
They then explained that I was young for a cycling journalist, which set me thinking about the nuances of the cycling world for the younger generation. Here are a few things you learn pushing the pedals before your prime.
When you go on holiday without a bike, in the first session back your heart rate flies through the roof as soon as you put in an effort because you’re super responsive to that intensity. At the other end of the scale, on the last day of a training camp, when you go to do some efforts, you’ll struggle to get it up.
