I first learned to ski at the age of 10. While I had a late start, I dedicated myself to mastering the sport.
I was never into the big three sports – sure I played a little football, baseball and basketball. They were all gateway sports for me. My real passion was ski racing.
How to Do What You Love.
This is so simple, but we have been brought up with a lie, or worse, we sold out for so little. Do what you love. Everyone’s knee jerk reaction to that is “There is no money in what I love to do” There is no money in cooking food, there is no money in my sport I have been practicing all my life, there is no money in art, there is no money in philosophy.
How to beat the phrase, I have no time to bike and finding time to ride
What is your next step? Where do you want to go from here? A good friend of mine asked me this question earlier this week and I had to think about it. A Lot.
I thought about my commitment to riding everyday. You can learn more about my morning practice here.
Earlier this month, I made the commitment to providing more value on geraldrhodes.com. I’m excited to announce that I will be performing a live webinar this Saturday morning at 8:00AM MDT. Just register for my best work and I will be sure to include you in this and future webinars.
On this first webinar, we will be talking about finding time to ride. This informative webinar will be a motivational start to your Saturday as well as way to supercharge your morning ride.

Even the shortest amount of exercise can have a profound effect on your exercise program. It can be the difference between starting and not starting at all.
No, you will not achieve your weight loss goals by riding five minutes a day. I have never met anyone who got a flat stomach from 6 minutes of exercise. What you can do is start a habit. As our lives get busier and busier, that new good habit is probably going to have to replace an existing habit. And these good habits tend to multiply.
A body in motion tends to stay in motion.
