The Desire to Ride

I sit hear just itching to ride and wonder what is it that gives me this almost irresistable desire. I raced yesterday and worked hard, it’s pouring rain and cold out but all I can think of is a nice easy ride on my bike this afternoon.

Obviously it’s not because I feel like I need a good workout (got my fastest average pace ever yesterday) or because the weather is nice I and I want to get out an enjoy the sun. The desire has to come from some place deeper than either of those wishes.

Is it some right of passage that makes us want to go fight it out in the rain and cold? Some badge of honour that we can wear when we hear our friends talk about staying inside in similar weather? Is it this primal urge for dominance?

Truth be told I have no idea I’m just wondering aloud.
