To the Sun: Lino DiSalvo

Saturday November 9th and I'm just a few miles into participating in my first Rapha Gentlemen's Race. Our group converges with two riders out for a morning ride. Both are lean and kitted in fine style. Both ride very nice bicycles. I sense a potentially dangerous situation.

It’s getting to that time of year. The growing light lingers like a promise in the air, as each night becomes just a few minutes shorter. Here, in the Pacific Northwest, we get these spotted days, of sunlight mixed with rain, then gradually completely dry commutes or training rides. Everyone starts their longing sooner or later. Longing for the days when the shorts are short and unencumbered by leg warmers and long tights. When the skin is tanned, toned and ready to race.
