The last few years have been equal parts blur and eternal present. I’ll skip the parts we all know well, anxiety, confusion, fear and loss. What has bonded us, is a yearning for clarity. In good times and bad though, clarity comes when you least expect it. You can’t find who you are, it finds you.
L’Equipe Camp returned after 4 long years. Our last L’Equipe Camp happened in different times, in a different life. I was hesitant to do another. I always seemed to expect more out of past trips. I wanted the rides to be longer and harder. I wanted better legs and and a lighter bike. I wanted the sun to shine brighter and the rosé to be colder. There was always something I expected, and something I could never have. When trips came to an end and friends went back home, I never found what I thought I would.
