#deardiary today I had to let go one of my bikes... 😭💔🚲 Some time ago I decided to start emptying my hands from material things. I was taught that the more you take, the less you have. And as I let go many things in my life, I gained a feeling of relief, and strangely, fullness. Sadly, that was not today’s scenario.
The 2016 rockhopper was my first bike, I bought it when I started my fitness journey. I saved some money and got a loan for paying the rest. Back in those days I used to be a fan of #gmbn and get all excited watching their stunts and videos. When I was car riding, I used to watch the dirt roads aside the tarmac and visualizing me riding those roads. I also remember my first mountain ride and the first time I heard that aluminium vs rock noise. All the places we went, and the fresh air of those night rides trough the city, all the pictures we had...
As I wasn’t a very skilled mountain biker, I remember getting down from the bike to walk trough the parts of the road that I considered as dangerous. With her by my side, like two brothers holding hands. Eventually I start riding less and less in the mountain (fractured ribs being the main reason). But she kept being my partner for going anywhere... until today. #ihategoodbyes
And as if that was not sad enough, today I saw a picture that I took when I bought her, and here is the saddest part: I remember being all excited, I remember felling ultra happy and proud. I was desirous for going to new places, discovering new roads and finding new adventures. I felt hunger for becoming stronger, to be more in touch with nature and with myself. Every day I wanted to be riding my bike. Today I don’t own my rockhopper anymore, and it has been long since I don’t feel like I used to feel when I had it at first. 😭😭😭
