I had to give this some thought. the brief was
a place, object, or view that’s entirely yours, or you’re a bit selfish or possessive about
Why the bike? This is the first Carbon Time Trial Bike I bought. I still own it, ride it, and am taking it to New Zealand to race in the triathlon World championships in just over a week’s time. When I qualified to represent Great Britain for the first time in 2009, it was in Australia. I got 6 weeks notice to find the cash to pay for the trip. We were struggling to afford two plane tickets, so my husband said he would stay at home. I wasn’t all that sure that arrangement was fair, so I sold my motorbike (daytona 955i) and bought this bike to race on, and a plane ticket for my husband to come with me.
Hence, I feel very possessive about this bike, because not only does it mean a lot, but it symbolises a lot for me too.
