The Climb

The peaks are hairpin turns, woods, drop offs, foot path. Mostly pain. Climbing is a choice. You can feel the effort, but much better the challenge. Grimpeur (rope climbing) is a state of mind. Riding up to a peek you can feel yourself like an ibex. Light as a feather. Purely aerodynamic. Free. There are only you and your purpose. Pushing down on two pedals as the great champions do. You feel every single muscle working, deep down to your nerves. But when you lift your head up there, the sky is everywhere. And it belongs to you.
