Day #12 – Feb. 9, 2017 (‘4 Year Achievement’)

"Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in." A long time ago I promised myself that I would one-day bike home from my university (a distance of about 27 miles). Today, I can finally say, as Barney Stinson would, "Challenge Completed!" Now the only thing left to say is GG EZ! Today's Stats ...

"The will to persevere is often the difference between failure and success." Today marks an important moment in my journey; I crossed over the 1500 mile barrier on my bike today.

"Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike" For today's ride, I went to spot I've driven by a million times in my life. It's a small spot about 10 miles away from my home where a lonely white bike resides. The bike has been there for almost 10 years and with it, ...

"You can't buy happiness, but you can buy a bike and that's sort of the same thing" Today was my third speed run of the year and let me tell you guys it's getting easier. My body is becoming accustomed to the collateral damage of cycling and my butt doesn't hurt as much while riding. ...

Day #6 – Jan. 30 2017 (The Return)

"When in doubt. Pedal it out."  It had been a while but I'm so glad I finally got back on my bike today. I feel that the break (while a little long) was exactly what I needed to get faster. Today I finally managed to average over 13 mph on my ride, making it my fastest ...

"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving"  - Albert Einstein Today was one of those days where everything was perfect. My body felt great, the weather was friendly, and my mind was at peace. I got on and pedaled away, so much so that I almost forgot to take ...
