… I have some ground to make up.
Hit up Sundance (the resort, not the film festival!!) last night. You can meet some awesome characters riding the lift solo.
Excerpts from one such conversation:
Me: “You come up here much?”
#1 Awesome Guy: “Wed nights and all day Saturday and Sunday… Not as much as I’d like”.
#1: “Provo Canyon is the embodiment of all that is right in the world”.
Me: “Totally. I don’t know where Disney Land gets off calling itself ‘the happiest place on earth’ when that title clearly belongs to the Alpine Loop.”
As tends to happen with me the conversation turned to cycling. It turns out “#1″ used to be a cyclist.
#1 Awesome Guy: Yeah, my normal Sunday training ride used to be around the (Utah) lake. 100 miles, alone… You just can’t get much more zen than that”.
Kindred spirits… Just like that.
