It’s not about lycra, carbon and electrolytes.
It’s not about wolfing down calories at stops.
It’s not about getting dressed for war.
It's about freedom.
It’s about the company.
It’s about getting on the road, off the map.
It’s about having a cheeky beer or two.
It’s about battling away to put in a good time, but completely forgetting our ambition ten minutes later.
