The other day on my ride with Stephen we had a short but serious conversation about my need for a 2nd bike. After all, it was decided, I own a cycling tour company. I need a back-up.
I’ve had this same conversation with my wife, with similar results, but less unanimity. It usually goes something like “stop trying to justify it and just buy the damn thing”.
Then this morning I had a little chat with Dr. James, who has just bought a new BMC, casually throwing out that ‘my other bike is a Prince’.
The way ‘my other bike’ rolled so effortlessly off his fingertips made me once again realize that I need to up my game. I might be the only guy I know without ‘my other bike’. Although I still love it dearly, my dream is to one day be able to say, “my other bike is a Bianchi”.
