GLOBAL BATTLE, INDIVIDUAL EFFORT
Obstacles come in many forms.
Some are singular and some are regretfully plural and touch our entire community,
as the case of the COVID19 pandemic.
While relegated to our homes, overcoming this challenge is a strange mix of adapting individually to beat this enemy as a collective. We have had to ADAPT to training in different scenarios in order not only to preserve our own health and that of the others but to not let our love of cycling die despite living through a lockdown.
Overcoming the global pandemic by riding separately together…
INSIDE OR OUT, RIDE BETTER, RIDE BASSO
OVERCOME - INJURY
Of the many obstacles that the cyclist finds along his or her path, perhaps the injury is the most feared as it tests both the physical and mental resiliance of the rider in an absolutely direct manner. Overcoming the injury is a process that involves extreme mental fortitude as one must regain confidence, strength and courage alongside his or her health.
The injury, large or small as it may be, requires not only mental strength to affront painful recovery but also prudence to take on recovery in a smart and methodical fashion and patience to see it through without haste. Regretfully, it is an obstacle that we all must face and overcome at one point or another. Watts may prove your physical strength, overcoming injury proves your mental fitness.
WE DON’T RIDE, WE OVERCOME
The number of obstacles that the cyclist faces are many. It appears as if there is an unending list. Many would say that the list alone sohuld be enough to persuade the cyclist to choose another sport. The cyclist however lives to take on challenges with one goal in mind: to OVERCOME.
