THE ROAD IS THE DESTINATION
Focusing on the destination is like going out for a long ride and only thinking about how quickly you’ll get to the end. That’s racer mentality. Racing focuses on hydration, heart rate and winning, but totally ignores the pleasures of the journey itself. When we’re racing we only think about the finish, but it’s on the path where we spend most of our lives.
It is true that it’s fun sometimes to get out there and haul ass — to feel the wind on your face and notice the breath as it leaves your lungs. And it’s also true that our bicycles move very, very fast.
Budnitz Bicycles are fun to ride slowly, too. They’re extremely beautiful and very comfortable machines. Our trademark split-tube titanium cantilever frame keep the road smooth at any speed.
My favorite rides are the ones when I just hop on with a credit card in my pocket, no destination in mind, and no time frame for getting there. Then I’ve already arrived just where I want to be, enjoying the ride.
