Walkin' on the Bike Course


Liner Notes:18% grade. Yeah, I did it again. I walked up a couple of those damn hills on the bike course.

there's a new race in town
and I don't know what it's all about
but I cannot be left in the cold
so I sign up online, Visa Gold

I go to the website, hey hey
says the bike course is TBA
but I don't care what I find on race day
as long as there is no elevation gain

exit the swim with the leading pack
toss my goggles, ply my bike off the rack
and as I set out into the morning sun
I wonder if these suckers know what's to come

cuz everybody knows I bring my game
can even beat a pro if the course is tame
but a big climb can bring me chills
because I cannot ride my bike up a hill

I'm walkin' on the bike course
walkin' on the bike course (two feet)
an elevation nightmare
a two-foot climb into the thin air
I'm walking on the bike course

Interlude...

10 years ago you wrote this song
‘Bout me walkin’ up a hill ‘cause my biking wasn’t strong
We came back to Thailand to take another shot
Fuckin' walked that hill again and blew every single baht


as the crest finally appears
I can safely remount my carbon steer
now I set my sights on that teenage tyke
the one who just passed me on her mountain bike

I hit 40 MPH going down
my disc wheel makin that helicopter sound
like a freightrain on a lightening track
haulin ass as long as the road stays flat

when I turn the corner, what do I see?
another freakin mountain to punish me
I slam into my granny and start to spin
this 9 percent grade will surely be my end

I'm walking on the bike course
walking on the bike course (two feet)
elevation nightmare
a two-foot climb into the thin air

walking on the bike course
walking on the bike course (head down)
a lactic acid catastrophe
my climbing legs officially have left me
I'm walking on the bike course
