Cycling Haiku (5-7-5)

Paulo Bettini literally is poetry in motion on a bicycle. Despite the common belief that writing poems while on a training ride is quite difficult and possibly unsafe, I beg to differ. The art of the haiku is perfect for creating AND chanting while you train. Give it a try....I'll be posting some bike haikus in upcoming blogs. (anyone out there think this might be a sure sign of oxygen debt?)

Winter training camp
Taking a piss while rolling
Making Frozen Ropes

Dreaming of Colnago
with some Campy or Shimano
Clinchers or tubies?
