As much as we would like to, there is never enough time for doing everything we want. So we have to make choices and decide what is more important, try to hold on to that plan and say fuck it when we get the chance. Sometimes the plan just has to change randomly and you have to put yourself in the first place, sometimes you get the opportunity to have a great time and you just have to take it, you never know when you’ll get it again.
A few months ago, we were on our way to Trieste, an alley cat was happening there for the first time and it was a great way to meet new people, and possibly spread the word about our shop. Of course we had to make a few stops on the way, some of them personal, some were pure business and one was to eat pizza (which is always a good one). The plan was to get to Trieste as fast as possible, so we could explore the city on our bikes drink coffee by the sea and probably eat some more pizza. But one of those random changes happened while we were driving on the highway ... "why don’t we just stop somewhere here and go for a ride?".
The Slovenian karst landscape is beautiful by itself, but see it on a sunny September day, with no traffic around and it’s something else entirely. Simple as that, Jure had his camera and I had mine, we parked the car near some random vineyard and went for a short ride. We managed to film some clips that were later used in the cycling kit presentation and I took some photos, it was fun. What stayed in my mind were the views, the grapes and the relaxed moment off the grid. No one cared about the photos or the clips, if we get something useful that’s great and if we don’t, at least we’re outside having a good time. For me this is what an adventure should feel like… sure, this one was really short and we had to get to Trieste in time but no one really cared about that, if we would have been late than fuck it… doing stuff like this keeps you feeling alive and in control of yourself. And we’ll keep doing stuff like this, because it’s what makes us different and it’s what we believe in…allow yourself to be spontaneous and you’ll never regret it!
