I felt something deep within, a sense of freedom I seldom experience elsewhere
The sense of isolation from what I deem the real world had slowly been growing the higher the road rose towards the sky, until finally, as we crested the peak of another mesmerising climb, it reached a crescendo.
Here, high in mountains that proudly stood guard over distant valleys far below us, I felt something deep within, a sense of freedom I seldom experience elsewhere. My legs ached from the days riding, but I cared not because my mind was free from all thought as a sense of inner peace and calm washed over me.
This was pure escapism from a world full of demands for my attention, the incessant noise of notifications, never a moment to switch off. As demanding as the climbs were, there was something incredibly meditative about the journey through the mountains, every summit revealing yet more of the enchanting land I was immersed in.
Conquistador Cycling Club’s expedition is so much more than a bike ride, it is a journey through an awe-inspiring landscape, and at the same time to your inner-self.
