Be Brave When You Ride
Today I road a Full Cycle Thunder Commute to work. I road the route that I was riding on March 17, 2014. I was thinking about Franklin D. Roosevelt's famous quote.
So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt
As I rode past the fire station on HYW 91 I realized that being brave is not ever being afraid, but being brave is overcoming your fear. I am so glad to be able to ride to and from work again. I know that I will soon put to rest all of my feelings of frustration of missing almost a year of riding my bike and just be glad that I am here to ride another day.
Here are my favorite quote by me:
When someone ask why I ride my bicycle so much, I reply, I bike for chocolate.
When my body tells me to slow down my brain says, Ride today so that you can ride tomorrow.
