The Mountain Bike Life
My hardtail and I have been together for sixteen years. This Specialized Rockhopper was my first mountain bike. The first bike I fell over clipped in. The first bike I endo’d. The first bike I rode on loam, on rock, on sand. We don’t hang out as much anymore but we dream of future good times in places we haven’t been. Maybe that’s why this old Supertramp tune seemed fitting for us.

Take a look at my hardtail

It’s the only one I got
Not much of a hardtail
Never seem to ride it lots
Take a road trip across the border
Like to see Idaho
Ride the hardtail on super singletrack
I’m hoping it’s going to come true
But there’s no more days off due
Could we have bacon for breaky?
Syrup too! Syrup too!
They got to have ‘em in Boise
‘Cause there’s a bacon restaurant!
I’m a Canuck, I’ve got luck
Do you want my 26er?
I’m a biker, sometimes hiker
I’m drinking my beer with you
Before there’s more riding to do
Take a look at my hardtail
It’s the only one I got
Not much of a hardtail
Never seem to ride it lots
Take a road trip across the border
Like to see Idaho
Ride the hardtail on super singletrack
I’m hoping it’s going to come true
But there’s no more days off due
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh….

Commitment: Take the line
Riding in Perfect Solitude
