Whether it’s your favourite or nemesis ride, you visualise it in your head the night before, you know the roads like the back of your hand, every corner, climb and descent it’s as if you were there already….then press start, click in, change down, you're off, the anticipation as you glide out of town and onto the rolling roads up to the foot of the first climb. The head wind doesn’t bother you “tail wind home" you say to yourself.
As the climb draws near you're conserving energy ready ahead of the first challenge of the day, the climb rolls on and you pass a few riders in their own moment of pain and ecstasy, the gradient steepens but you're feeling good, 100m to go that final push out of the saddle and the PB is yours, the first of many today. Then focus your mind for the rewarding descent, the spoils for your effort unfolds in front of you, swooping down it’s as if you’re on rails, the swish of the tyres and the sound of the wind, at one with the machine.
Then the road opens up, you're back on the rolling roads with more climbs and technical descents to come but they're covered with poise and grace. The miles count down until you see the sign for home, there’s rain in the air but your mudguards keep you dry, you pass the century and you still feel good, the ride feel of Steel is real and you're home, feet up, cup of tea, exhilarated with a sense of accomplishment….
