Rediscovering a Lost Love
-by Amy Bush
I love cycling, I really do, but somewhere along the way I forgot that. I'm not sure when it started, but I think it was sometime around the 2010 Amgen Tour of California.
I was sick before I even left for the airport, a stomach virus I assumed because the nausea was unbearable and I'd barely eaten in three days. Then, the seemingly simple matter of picking up my rental car turned into a huge headache as my bank had put a hold on the nearly $400.00 out-of-state charge so it took multiple phone calls and 2+ hours before I was able to drive away. The next few days visiting with my cousin and his wife in San Leandro were nice, but upon my departure for Sacramento and the start of the ToC, I discovered a huge crack in the windshield of the rental car which had been parked in the open with no tree limbs in sight since my arrival.
