Ride Ride Ride


When the small voice inside is asking, but not really asking, "Should I ride today, or not," and starts to come up with lame reasons and the typical excuses, just stop the interior monologue with a persistent reply, "Ride, ride, ride," get your stuff, and start moving toward your bicycle. Do not hesitate, do not give the resistance time to reorganize itself, just go to where the bike is kept, check that the tires have air and the brakes work (having kept the chain in perfect lubricated status the previous night), then do the right thing. Get up. Go ride. Ride ride ride.

  1. Yesterday, I kept listening to the small voice and promptly fell asleep on the couch.
    You pretty much nailed it.
    Getting out the door is the hardest part.

  2. Maybe you needed a nap! But I'm just saying that overcoming the resistance and going for a ride seems to work out for the best every time. You could always go for a ride to help yourself decide if you should go for a ride...
