What do you love about cycling?

The freedom to get away from the daily grind, test myself against the terrain, the elements, my friends. To push myself to my limits, be it on an epic ride, an endurance race or even a short hammer from my doorstep – my blood pumping, lungs screaming but smiling all the time. The technology, or sometimes the lack of it. The constant development in the sport, be it in the bikes themselves in such things as dropper posts, tubeless tyres and so on but also the fun in the simplicity of just hitting the trails on something without all the trappings of a ‘modern’ bike – one gear, two wheels and nothing buffering me against what is under-tyre.
