Reflection: Steve and I were talking about it the other day, particularly the bizarre situation of pedalling 100 kgs up the hills. It hurt so badly, and it felt like your heart was about to burst out of your ribcage, but you absolutely could not stop becuase if you did you, and the 100kgs, would slip backwards down the hill. Bikes don't ride backwards - so that would have meant a skid, tip over, crash, mangle, gears, cuts, gease, blood, snaps, breaks, ends etc. There's not many tough situations in my life where you HAVE TO KEEP ON GOING. And even though sometimes we were literally inching our way to the finish withs pinning rear wheels, we didn't slip backwards once, and we loved it.
