    Go explore by bike, ride somewhere totally new, take pictures, breath new air. A bike helps you experience not just new looks, but new sounds, new smells, you feel the air, you flow with the ups and downs of the road, your curiosity is only bridled by your physical limits to keep going.

    Go. Explore.



    Feeling lost in the midst of the daily doing of it all? Grab perspective - it leads to meaning that motivates the grind necessary to take the dreams you claim as your own.

    It’s almost 2013 - what big leaps do you need to prepare for?

    Try taking them seriously this year.

    straight boss.

    This is what no training plan can give you. If you aren’t going to do it - simply ride your bike more - every day - then the rest is moot.
