    Fitness....plus I want to be able to go farther/faster. I mainly started riding to try and help with a borderline high BP.

    Want to try a few new things this year. Group rides, century and just overall try to pile on more miles.

    I train because I want to ride better, faster, longer......the best I can possibly be. It's just a search.

    Because racing is fun, and getting results is even more fun.

    Because you can't comfortably do the distances I do without a practice ride or two.

    1. Primes the brain to enjoy and exploit all aspects of life,

    I like to ride with whomever shows up at clubs group rides. Plus it makes me faster, I can eat more, it's more fun than sitting on couch.....
    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.
