One of my favorite parts of cycling in the mountains is coming down through a town at the foot of the hills. When riding or relaxing in these towns the average onlooker will crane their necks to have a longer look at these mountain men and women. Over the past couple weeks I’ve become a little obsessed with climbing. The allure of climbing shares many characteristics as cycling or more specific classic mountainous cycling. Both represent pure class concerning etiquette and sportsmanship in those who participate. The Enormocast and The Dirtbag Diaries are doing some great things for the outdoor community. I’m terrified of heights so therefore taking to climbing may be out of my reach at the moment but the stories that are told in these podcasts concern anyone who goes head to head with the mountain.
