A story about this — 4 years ago
I like to ride my bike. Off and on over the years. Some years alot, some years a little. This year I have ridden more than usual. Did 214mi on Seattle to Portland. hacked the Swobo, doing 100mi tomorrow, etc. But I have never been a racer. Racing bikes is a whole nuther kettle of fish. Ten Points wraps all the challenges and demons in life up in trying to win ten points at the Thursday night Crit series. I have ridden the Thursday night Crit (in Seattle). It is brutal. At a certain point, all the racers are fit enough and it comes down to grit, determination and desire to inflict pain on oneself to win or even place.
A very inspiring book about life, bikes and dreams. The important parts, the ability to dream and keep dreaming even when you don’t get your dreams. Everyone should read this book.
I rate 5 of 5 stars.
