I actually moved to Oregon to be able to ride more. What ended up happening is finding a lot more things that interested me. Cycling took a back seat quickly. My view of cycling is different now. I'm now happy with rides of 35 miles where before I would whine and complain if it was anything less than 50. I think it's better to have diverse interests than solely focused on just one. I know my life is much more complete because of it.
