The best day I have had on a bike was a text message. My buddy Leah won a P1/2 local roadrace on my birthday... we'd been doing really hard rides in the mtns above Malibu flogging the stuffing out of each other 5 hours at a time on Saturdays. She is tough and relentless and perpetually on the gas. And then yeah, recovery did involve my first pedicure. I woke up on my bday to this. It's my favorite result.
