It’s an age-old question: Is there meaning behind sports or not? I’ve wrestled with this one a lot, and I bet most of us have been on both sides of it.
No matter where you’re at with it now, there’s traction for you in this short soliloquy to cycling.
Two-time Gravel Worlds winner John Borstelmann’s video is less than 2 minutes long. And like any love letter, it brims with sentiments all along the spectrum between relatable and sappy.
“Get me on a bike, and I’ll passionately tell you about how cresting over a mountain feels, or how descending slows down time,” he waxes.
If that’s a little much for you, consider his earlier self-assessment: “I never really considered myself a cyclist. I don’t have skinny arms or a mustache. I’ve never even really liked coffee.”
Whether you think it’s cheesy or an outright revelation, or anywhere in between, this one’s primed to hit pedal pushers right in the feels.
