Cycling in Austin

It’s all about the journey.

It is nice to have goals, but as a person who has accomplished some of them I can honestly say, it is never as good as I think it will be. The journey to the goal was the fun part.

On the bike, we are always headed somewhere. Some of us are headed towards burning calories, others are headed to events or the grocery store, or whatever. But slow down a little, enjoy the journey. It is not about how fast you are or how soon you can get there.  And if you enjoy it more you will do it more. And you will naturally get stronger and faster.  Maybe not racing fast, but from what I hear those people are not very comfortable on the journey.  If you like racing and competing I am not against you, I just do not think that way myself.  I just like to ride my bike.  Preferably with other people.

In the end all you have is the journey. And the journey is always best when shared.
