I know quite a few bicyclists and it occurred to me that a few of them seem to do the many miles at the expense of home upkeep, relationships, job, and other life's responsibilities. All the while, I know many others that do the rest of their lives THEN seem to get in the necessary miles and bicycle enjoyment.
Although my wife doesn't ride like I do (150 miles weekly for me), she supports my passion. I can't help but think that her support is partly due to me "getting things done" around the house prior to my rides. I'm thinking out loud here but, I enjoy pounding down the highway so much more when most of the "ducks are in a row" at home. Of course, others' choices are none of my business but I wonder, is this a state of mind others experience or should this question fall, without comment, into the back pages of the Forum?
