Hey kids I'm just wondering what got you started in the sport of cycling? A major life changing event or you have always done it?
For me it started close to eight months ago. I had just broken up with my fiance and lost my inheritance in a business investment and getting some awful grades in school due to the stress in the other areas and not being able to focus.
Our family took a two week long vacation in Oregon and took all of the bicycles. There wasn't a whole lot to do so I just got myself depressed by thinking of everything that was wrong in my life at the time.
Until one day I grabbed my dad's road bike and went for a ride. I practically died I was so out of shape!
Every day I kept pedaling and got a little closer to the top of this mountain. Finally got to the top before we left and when I looked down and realized how far I had come I realized I would get through this. This pain would go away and I would be stronger for going through it.
Just like cycling. The climb up is painful and hard but when you get to the top and get to fly down it was all worth it.
Now I'm loving every minute on my bike!
What about you guys?
