A much more light hearted Rapha film, focusing on the conversation brought about during rides. Really enjoyed it.
‘Come and ride in Yorkshire, they said. We’ll explore: the Howardian Hills, the North York Moors, and the Yorkshire Dales. It would be a first for me, but exploring on a bicycle isn’t something that comes naturally to a bike racer, former or not. It is a skill that has to be learned, like patience or golf. Like many bike racers, I’ve always looked at riding a bike in the same way that I would go about robbing a bank: get in, get the job done, get out as quickly as possible and change out of your disguise.’
You are an evil prick. An invisible, faceless assassin. The sniper in the bell tower. The black ops of the natural world, slowly and steadily masterminding my downfall. I do not like you. But I won’t say it out loud as I know how curses travel upon your currents. And how on hearing them, you’ll change your angle of attack just to spite me. No, I know you Mr Wind, so I will humbly bow my head into your wretched breath, grind my way home, and keep on peddling in defiance.
