|This is the only reason I bothered to wake up New Year's Day.|
The only time I felt truly low on a long bike ride is when I saw a banana on the ground while climbing back into the Valley from Malibu.
I turned around to pick it up and possibly eat it, only to find that it was just a peel. Worse than the sinking feeling in your stomach when you think you complete the last climb on a ride you've never been on, or the feeling of your sun-dried brain at the end of a hot day during summer. It's your expectations meeting reality and quickly turning into a pile of ashes on the floor.
I let out a heavy-hearted sigh, completed the ride and made my way to the nearest liquor store where I bought cheap Mexican beer and two bananas.
