In the woods, dodging trees, crunching twigs and living on instinct.
That’s mountain biking as I learnt it. It was pure and it was simple, it was beautiful and hard. I loved it. That love drives people to incredible lengths. People are very quick and very willing to put their whole lives into that thrill. I don’t mean those who manage to win competitions and make money and stuff, I mean the folk who just plug away, determined and philosophical, living a life that truly is different.
