Cycling is so hard, the suffering is so intense, that it’s absolutely cleansing. The pain is so deep and strong that a curtain descends over your brain… Once; someone asked me what pleasure I took in riding for so long. “Please???”, I said. “I don’t understand the question, I didn’t do it for the pleasure, I did it for the pain.”

—Lance Armstrong
