I don’t remember those days all that fondly. Constantly being mad at my riding, not enjoying my rides. No matter what I did it never seemed enough. It was time to take out the stressor, stop obsessing over data and numbers and letting go. Back to a simpler style of riding, not tracking just enjoying.
Nothing makes your old bike feel unwanted faster than looking at a new shinning bike. We must break that spell; focus on what you need and not what you want. With a new offseason coming trade shows and product are in bloom. We must be extra vigilant and keep our rampant unchecked consumerism under control.
