    That One Spot...

    It's that one spot on the climb where you push past the dread in your stomach, reach deep inside and engage the ascent as an ally, as opposed to your enemy. Maybe I felt it a little more strongly tonight because as I was riding in 23 degrees and after the first false flat there was a rustling in the brush and i turned and saw the tell tale white fur pointing straight up and leaping away but it was one of those rides where I was grateful to be out and to be on a single speed. The silence was almost tangible broken only half way through the climb by a passing car, I'm sure I was a sight but I don't pay attention anymore. I was there in the moment, in the silence, heaving my bike back and forth mashing to the top. I didn't feel the cold, I didn't notice the dark I was just in it the way we get when we're in that place with no derailleurs, no excess just us and the bike, feet on pedals to chain to cog to crest.
