What IF...

Written by Wade Praeger, with apologies to Kipling.

IF you can hold your line when all about you
Swerve and crash when they  ride,
If you can trust the guy ahead to swim true,
But make allowance for currents and  tide.
If you can train and not make training too serious,
Or be hungry and not hunger for fries,
Or being ridiculed, not be too ridiculous
By wearing an aero’ helmet on a group ride.
