Go ahead mope. Curl up in front of your TV and maunder down that irrevocable descent to senescence and death. Probably you can find a forum for that too - for people who have given up on life.

OK, I admit - I'm going a bit over the top, here. Cycling avidly nearly every day is not the only way to seize control of your life and to maintain vitality. But on this forum, it's damned close.

You don't have to ride centuries to hang out here or to stay fit. You don't have to enjoy every ride. But remember this: THere are countless days when most of us kind of feel like skipping our rides, BUT WE DON'T and when we get out there and get past those cranky first couple of miles, we are deeply deeply grateful that we pushed ourselves out the door and into the world on two wheels.
