Since we have gone to full lock down and it looks like riding outside will be a tad difficult to do for the foreseeable. What skillz are you looking forward to reacquainting yourselves with in the summer?
Blowing snot rockets? Taking the bidon out of the bottle cage instead of off the shelf? Cornering all by your little self using the steering? (Actual banking into turns?) . Wearing a jersey? Wearing a Skid Lid and goggles? Being able to reach stuff in your back pockets? Fixing a puncture? Shaving the pistons? What?
Descending is not in high demand in this neck of the woods…
First off…kudos to your powers of optimism thinking this will be over by summer.
Secondly…looking forward to reacquainting with speed, plain and simple velocity. I’ve lost all sense of movement, 120w is the same as 520w. Fast, slow…it’s all the same.
As for skillz…braking! Goes hand-in-hand with speed. My bike is covered in trainer sweat except my brake levers which have a thick coating of dust. Lost all sense of slowing down and stopping power/distance.
