Here goes…

6 May 2010 § Leave a comment

Let’s start with the very first cycling poem I ever wrote, way back in 2005. I’ve moved on a bit since then, but the sentiment’s still the same.

REALITY CHECK

It’s not miles
Speed
Or what you spend:

It’s being out here
When the wind hits fifty on the flat
Hurling ball-bearing rain

And people passing
Shake their heads
And smile sadly.

That’s when you know
This is the real thing.
And so are you.
