Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Four years of college and your grammar still blows, unless you plan on a career in professional texting.

If you can't organize your schedule to include biking and workouts, you certainly can't organize your studies to finish strong.

Cheers

I'm sorry, I can't help you....

Much like the nastiest of farts, motivation comes from deep, deep within yourself.

If school is taking all your time then ride TO school. That way you are killing 2 birds with 1 stone. Nothing wrong with a commute. Ride to work as well. Ride anywhere that you don't have to take an expressway.

Ride 6 days a week. You will have a better attitude, more energy, better health, stress reduction, strength, stamina and improved mental clarity. Cycling may even give you the strength to use apostrophes. Stand up from the computer, right now, grab your bike and ride for at least one hour. Repeat tomorrow. And so on. Without obsessive cycling, you're just another kid with a college degree and a blank look.

You don't have a thing to worry about. The job market is wide open for kids who graduate with a degree in Feminist Literature.

You gotta get on the bandwagon here Papa P - it's now known as Pexting, a professional texting service for those that can't.
