Motivational Gibberish

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

Everyone you race against is training and they are doing it harder.

You aren't getting younger and fat doesn't disappear on its own.

To myself: "It's going to be a lot harder and a hell of a lot more boring if you get dropped. Hold that wheel dammit!"

When other racers talk to you they act interested in how you did solely out of pity. They already assume they know the answer.
