I had an epic ride today. And I want to share it with everyone.
Most people think their ride starts when they get on the saddle and start pedaling. Mine started several days before. Let me explain.
You see, I have started using a calendar to map out my week. When I expect to be at work, when I am going to write for myself, when I am going to write for you. And when I make time to ride.
So I was expecting (with the same anticipation I had when I was 12 and I was going skiing for the weekend – limitless excitement!) to go on a group ride on Saturday. My weekend plans changed. And that was okay.
I got the kids up early, got them to their Sunday morning activity, and started to think about where I would ride. I drank some coffee and came home to gather my gear. Filled the water bottles and filled the tires with air.
