Ride Like the Wind - Chris Cross
Over the Hills and Far Away - Led Zeppelin
The Road- The Levellers
Road to Nowhere - Talking heads
The Road Les Travelled - George Strait

There's a road a winding road that never ends
Full of curves lessons learned at every bend
Goin's rough unlike the straight and narrow
It's for those who go against the grain
Have no fear dare to dream of a change
live to march to the beat of a different drummer
And it all might come together
And it all might unraveled
On the road less traveled

For the road less traveled ain't for the faint of heart
For those who choose to play it safe and never stray too far
Me I want to live my life and one day leave my mark
And it all might come together
And it all come unraveled
On the road less traveled

I've chosen a pathway I may not endure
One thing's for certain nothing's for sure
And it all might come together
And it all might come unraveled
On the road less traveled

For the road less traveled ain't for the faint of heart
For those who choose to play it safe and never stray too far
Me I want to live my life and one day leave my mark
And it all might come together
And it all come unraveled
On the road less traveled

There's a road winding road that never ends

Why pamper life's complexities while the leather rubs smooth on a B17?

To the tune of Aqualung - Jethro Tull

Sitting on the Charge Spoon
Eyeing up the route sheet, he'll be there soon.
Snot running down his nose
Freezing fingers feeling sweaty clothes

Oh Randonneur!

Sun streaked with clouds, an old man wandering lonely
Taking time the only way he knows
Legs hurting bad as he climbs up to the Worlds End
And he drops down to the café to warm his feet.

Randonneur, my friend, don't you start away uneasy.
You poor old sod, you see, it's only me.

every CD I take off the shelf seems to have relevant titles
From one SonVolt album : Down to the wire, Roll on, When the wheels don't move, No turning back, Pushed too far, Strength and doubt.
I'll go for

Whiskeytown - Waiting to Derail
Jayhawks : What led me to this town
Jayhawks : Stumbling through the dark
Lucinda Williams : Car   wheels on a gravel road
Neil Young : What did you do to my life?

(random Americana much in evidence in my music collection)

PETER GABRIEL
"Solsbury Hill"

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing stretching every nerve
Had to listen had no choice
I did not believe the information
(I) just had to trust imagination
My heart going boom boom boom
"Son," he said "Grab your things,
I've come to take you home."

To keep in silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Tho' my life was in a rut
"Till I thought of what I'd say
Which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going boom boom boom
"Hey" he said "Grab your things
I've come to take you home."
(Back home.)

When illusion spin her net
I'm never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No one taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don't need a replacement
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going boom boom boom
"Hey" I said "You can keep my things,
they've come to take me home."

Matt Monro on days like these.

Questi giorni quando vieni il belle sole
la la la la la-la-la-la la la la la

On days like these when skies are blue and fields are green
I look around and think about what might have been
and then I hear sweet music float around my head
as I recall the many things we left unsaid
it's on days like these that I remember
singing songs and drinking wine
while your eyes played games with mine

on days like these I wonder what became of you
maybe today you are singing songs with someone new
I’d like to think you're walking by those willow trees
remembering the love we knew on days like these
it's on days like these that I remember
singing songs and drinking wine
while your eyes played games with mine

on days like these I wonder what became of you
maybe today you are singing songs with someone new

Questi giorni quando vieni il belle sole

John Evans of Jethro Tull has actually ridden quite a lot of Audax and quite a bit of that on fixed wheel. I think he lives in Australia now.

I've always been amused that he never enters brevets less than 600km because his average brevet distance is 590-something km.

Mine is only just over half that but I rode my first ECE in 2014 and I'm uncertain whether it is more appropriate to count it as 2 x 100 or as 1 x 200.
