Some cycle-tourists brought in boxed bikes for us to assemble. Upon opening the boxes, we discovered two Mongooses (Mongeese?).
Me: "What's better than having one Mongoose?"
Matt: "Not 'avin a Mongoose".
The man is a sage.
No one can ride a mountain for you. Be prepared to feel so tired that you truly believe you cannot go on. Be ready to admit to fatigue and, yes, dejection. There is no such thing as an easy ride up a mountain.
