a simple reminder to help you grow
How life evolves since the day we were born. At the sweet and innocent infant stage, everything starts out simple – eat, sleep, poop. In adulthood, we face the daily stresses that can wear us down over time. We are often tested on how to face adversity.
The current divide in our country is a reminder of how people cast opinions and view situations through different lenses. Some people are driven by fear and anger, while others are fueled by resolve and confidence.
Preparation always prevails
In the cycling world, a word often used is “mechanical” as a noun. It is used when there is a problem with the bike such as a broken chain, a flat tire, or a faulty gear shifter. A mechanical will often happen during a ride; hence it is encouraged to bring the necessary tools with you to fix the problem to complete the ride.
A pet peeve of mine is when someone shows up for a ride with a pre-existing mechanical that needs to be fixed before we can even start. I get it. We are all busy, but when my window of ride time is tight, do not cut it short by having to fix a mechanical before we even get started on our ride! Take care of it the night before.
