Why do I ride my bike?
There are so many reasons I ride my bike! My bike has brought me to so many beautiful places, taught me so many valuable lessons, and built a community of so many likeminded people. I ride my bicycle because it gives me the freedom to go on new adventures. My bike challenges me to push myself in ways no other sport can. I strive to become faster, beat my personal records, and dig a little deeper. It challenges me to overcome mental and physical obstacles. It may not take a day to conquer the obstacle, or even a year, but when I do the feeling is surreal. There is absolutely no feeling like crossing the finish line first and knowing all the long hard hours of suffering and pushing yourself have payed off. When you're on your bicycle all the worries go away, it's like you're on a mini vacation, and I get the privilege to be on that vacation every day I ride my bike.
Champions are made from something they have deep inside them.
A desire, A dream, A vision.
They have to have the skill and the will.
But the will must be stronger than the skill
