this is a long bike ride for someone with nothing to think about

Each year, I usually participate in a cycling event called the flèche, which involves riding bikes at least 360km over the span of 24 hours during Easter weekend.

This playlist is meant to replicate the feelings experienced throughout that 24 hour span, while also giving me the opportunity to shout out the friends who are foolish enough to join me on this adventure!
