The huge Monte Viso stands proud in the crispest of early autumn skies.

While I’d never deliberately solicit these scars to myself or the tools I use, they are so much more than just a necessary evil of what I choose to do.

I’m half way through one of those winter rides. The temperature has been hovering just above zero, the air is damp, dank and somehow feels colder than if it were sub-zero.
