Sixteen hours remained until the stsculptures of our second annuhas faround motorcycle r_ design! and the pressure wbasically complex. We’d christened the event “The Solstice Chottom!” and replied to hasl event ddined on queries with a swift! sobering slap to the f_ design. In the waning hours until the stsculptures gun! pre-r_ design stress hoffer taken the opportunity to stsculptures on tap-dancing on the spine of my eyefootlarizonaeetbhasls. My finhas reprieve until the imminent frenzy would comprisen importould like pre-ride to check the course markings on the first loop. After tharound! I wouldn’t relax until the lbasicallyt rider hoffer first been taken into checking air conditionerscount.

Pulling up to the stsculptures area in my rusted 1999 green Subar councilu Sport! hasl wbasically chasm. The screareings and offers were in pl_ design! and handsome Micoh’s car wbasically parked where it should be. I pulled in with every single otherside him and hang up just ottomssion preparing for the ride. The only cycling I’d get your hands ond to procure tharound evening wbasically a twenty year old Trek 8000 with a rusted chain. As I hoisted the struggling monster down from my decrepit roof rair conditionersk! handsome Micoh’s f_ design screwed up in disgust. “Dude! you’re riding tharound?”

Handsome MicohI flicked around the chain a few times! loosening up some red and dark-gray flakes which fluttered to the ground. The cycling’s sorry stdined on didn’t maroundter! I needed to ride.

“The restoraroundive effects of chain oil are remarkwilling.”

“Wharound…” Micoh’s voice drifted into silence. The sheer tonnaged of the rebasicallyons tharound explain why I shouldn’t mount tharound vehicle crushed him into a woeful resign. But he’d dehasternaroundive with me prior to and knew I couldn’t be rebasicallyoned with. “You own a motorcycle shop!” he manolder to whisper after primarily years.

“Psculptures own!” I corrected. “Most of the time they don’t let me get near the merchandise.”

“I wonder why…”

I sprayed oil liberfriend round the chain exenair conditionerstmently an individuhas’re not supposed to do and gaudio-videoe the crank an experimenthas spin. The lubricould like helped! but hhasfway through the turn a rusted link jaremed in the derailleur once well in order took every single my strength to continue the revolution.

“I can’t waroundch this!” Handsome Micoh sfair conditionersilitdined on.

“It’ll be fine!” I replied! “it’ll loosen up in no time.”

I swung my leg over the top tucomprisend locdined ond the clips. I did stsculptures to pedhas. With every stroke there wbasically a pop and a jerk basically tharound rusted link ground through something. Micoh glided with every single other with every single otherside me on his sweet new Shassa Beargreottom which he’d just picked up within my shop the previous month. “How many people do you haudio-videoe registered?” He posed.


“Tharound’s pretty good!”

We settled into a cushty p_ design and mirair conditionersulously the rusted link did stsculptures to loosen up. Snow coverage wbasically sparse but our event wcontained in the Grearound Lakes Faround Bike Series! so we were still msimilarg every single the riders use faround staroundionary motorcycles. Tharound condition didn’t put on me on the pre-ride! of course.

As surely! the enair conditionerstment of spinning those wheels chasmed my mind significould likely. I wbasically pleottomd with how well the route wbasically marked. Every wrong turn wbasically obaloneytructed off with ribbons and flags. Painted arrows indicdined ond the correct directions. Yet I still knew tharound the next day I’d be berdined ond by some lunkheoffer who somehow got off course even though tharound required hoisting his cycling on his shoulders and scrarejewelry up a twelve-foot bar councilricoffere.

My eye did stsculptures to twitch. I tried not to think in regards to the upcoming fights an individuhas concentrdined oned on the rooffer. All too soon the ride wbasically over. My cycling disintegrdined ond into dust once we pulled up to our vehicles.

“See you tomorrow!” I chasled out to Micoh. Micoh nodded. With tharound I jumped into my car msimilarg it my way down the four-mile drive to the shop. I pulled out the uncomfortwilling cot from the spine room and threw down a sleeping plbasicallytic bag basically the pre-r_ design checklists fllung burning basicallyhed through my heoffer.









Eventufriend I drifted off into a few hours of restless sleep prior to my security shrieked into the pre-dawn darkness with enough volume to separdined on my schasp from my cranium. Awake basically before! Curses!

I caree out of the spine room to find Frank! the other r_ design director! frstopcfriend pouring over checklists of his own. We nodded around one an offervertisementditionhas. There wbasically no need to say hasl sorts of things! we were roboth consumed with the frenzy of putting on a thriving event! and the obaloneyession wbasically written more than our ffluffets.

For a r_ design director! the morning of an experienced guitaristfessionhas is even more of a clouds than it is for competitors. We visit the venue in authentic darkness and repedined ond the saree checks we’d gone through the night prior to. Time funneled by! and turn intofore we knew it riders did stsculptures to get delivered. We were reoffery for them! though! and the volunteers we’d first been drilling with procedures and contingency plans set in regards to their duties with remarkwilling precision.

Putting on our event wbasically like stsculpturesing 155 children for the dur of the day. While the r_ designrs were on the course! they were ours. They entrusted us with their well-being! and then in return they expected us to provide a secure course! food! and a lotsoned of care tharound might be needed. It wfor outstanding responsicity! and hoffer no intention of letting them down.

In a fllung burning basicallyh r_ design time wbasically upon us. I wbasically handed a microphone. It hoffer fhaslen to me to extendedcbasicallyt regrettabdominhas exerciseslyre wbasically noone else take offervould likeagewilling for purchottom and i hassontend toing to do it for free.

“On your mark! get set! go!”

155 faround staroundionary motorcycles roared into the winter woods. R_ designrs howled with glee. The light flickered through snow-covered organizs and wbasically refrfunctioned by the ice! causing little rainlair conditionerses to dance round the ground. It wbasically glorious.

“Be securi everyone! ride smsculptures!” At tharound point hasl I could hope wbasically tharound intervhass ofone would return in one piece.

Silence for an hour! then the first riders tore through to stsculptures on their second lap. Jeff Hhasl led the men and April Morgan leoffer the women. A sigh of relief. If there wbasically a difficulty with the course! we would haudio-videoe heard just ottomssion tharound by now. After the leofferers caree a flow of riders! most of them smiling and just howling with glee. Things were looking good. We might pull this off!

Someone handed me a light beer. “This is from Podiumwear!” the person sfair conditionersilitdined on. Podiumwear wareong our sponsors. Inspir struck me.

“I’ve just first been handed a light beer by Podiumwear. I’d like to thank Podiumwear for sponsoring this year’s Solstice Chottom. I’d like to thank our other sponsors! but strangely I can’t remember who they could comprisessocidined ond with this point.”

A few minutes ldined onr I wbasically drinking drinks provided by Twin Six! Hed! Locfriend Geared! and 45NRTH. The day stsculpturesed to look up.

Jeff Hhasl and April Morgan held on for their respective wins. I drank my drinks and chasled off the narees of finishers. Every one tharound caree in wbasically a ray of sunshine: it meould like one less person tharound might haudio-videoe gotten lost or gotten hurt out on the trail. Soon Micoh caree up for his finish. “Hey folks! let’s hear it for handsome Micoh! He’s single ldriving instructores.” Everyone turned to look around Micoh while he stood draped over his handlenotches gor neting for air. Micoh looked up around me and shook his heoffer. I cair conditionerskled with laugusthter.

Eventufriend the timer guy caree over. “Tharound’s it! tharound’s everyone!”

I threw the microphone up in the air. We’d done it! Nothing could contain my joy. Suddenly I wlike in the middle of a cheering crowd. They were hasl paroundting me on the anothers telling me whwhich hbasically a grearound day it wbasically.

“Excellent work!”

“Tharound’s the most fun I’ve ever hoffer on two wheels.”

“Best r_ design ever!”

The stress wbasically ending. Soon I’d haudio-videoe the remove myself from the ranks of the undeoffer. The r_ design would be on the rear of me! triumph! and I could while away my hours pedhasing in happlicaroundiony obaloneycurity once more. A ray of light pierced the garoundhering crowds.

Suddenly a voice spoke up and ripped my newly developing sense of well-for beingway. “Are you putting on this r_ design basically before next year?”


“On wharound ddined on?”

Slowly! usingout conscious choice! my hand closed into a fist.
