Contrast this with the cyclists who strap their bike to an SUV and drive to the mountain when they want to ride.

I remember climbing a mountain in Argentina during a thunderstorm and an SUV-cyclist drove past. I broke out in hysterical laughter, thinking to myself: "you're doing it wrong!".

@glyph ppl often bypass the journey in favour of the destination, i feel that way about taking a plane vs sailing.
"YOU'RE MISSING EVERYTHIING!" I scream at the sky.
