The word “epic” refers to a long narrative poem written in elevated style, in which heroes of great historical or legendary importance perform valorous deeds. The setting is vast in scope, covering great nations, the world, or the universe, and the action is important to the history of a nation or people.
In stark contrast, there is what I am usually involved with on Saturday mornings. Un-epic.
A delightfully sunny and crisp 35 degrees at roll-out, warming up to about 55 degrees. There was a steady NW breeze at about 10mph. This ride went basically southeast, point-to-point. So, yeah, no heroes at all…it was tailwind the entire way.
At least, the main character does get the girl at the end.
