    I need some motivation.

    Somebody kick me in the arse.

    The Want is there, but the Will is a little lacking. I think it's the weather, been rainy/cold lately.

    Hopefully tomorrow's 35-miler will jump-start the Will. Playing soccer again too, so that should help as well.

    Well, for a small fee + travel expenses, I could come chase you with a cattle prod......

    That's a great motivator!

    The hardest part of your ride is getting out of the driveway. After that, you'll love it.

    I was in the area at Thanksgiving for my mother's 70th birthday. You should have posted up then and I would have driven up and kicked your ass. :-).

    Like others have said. Get out of the house/garage/yard and ride on.

    I'd managed about 2 rides in 3 weeks prior to this week due to travel, rain, and a cold picked up during the travels. I was feeling mis - er - a - ble and just didn't want to ride.

    This week I forced myself to go on an easy 15 mile ride Tuesday and a harder 20 mile ride yesterday. Now I'm feeling very energetic and looking forward to a longer 40 mile ride tomorrow.

    Go for a ride. You'll feel better, promise.

    Sometimes, finding a different route to ride can do wonders. I know I kind of get tired of riding the same routes over and over again.

    You may be able to find some new ones here

    Do what I do:
    Get up when your alarm goes off.
    Do not brush your teeth.
    Do not fix your hair.
    Do not wash your face.
    Take off all your clothes, stand on a scale, in front of a full length mirror.
    Look at the number on the scale. Look at yourself in the mirror. Keep doing this until you decide to get on the bike.

    I actually got to use this in a team building presentation at work. Just remember you asked for it. It is a self motivator.
