Lessons from the Long Road


"Like life, riding an average of 150 miles a day is an adventure: each day brings its own challenges. The external obstacles are immovable and uncaring (mountains and headwinds are like traffic; getting upset does you no good). The internal obstacles are tougher: pain, boredom, anxiety, confusion, discouragement, irritation, distraction. Sometimes, you ride with friends; sometimes, you must ride alone. You must decide how to spend your energy; how to save it, how to recover it. Tomorrow, you ride again."
