Ha! Chalk this post up to shameless self-promotion, but I thought this clip from my professional-athlete brother and his professional-athlete friend, talking about their two “sufferfest” bike/climbing tours, was hilarious (the best stuff for bike touring badassery starts around 40 seconds:)
Just for fairness’ sake, this was my take on the whole Sufferfest thing, and my take on Sufferfest 2, back when they both actually happened. No, I suppose it doesn’t do much to dispel what Cedar calls my “oh, everything is so delightful!” approach to bike touring;)
I figure it just goes to show that nothing makes you a badass like not owning a car. heh. Or something.
