Be Brave When You Ride

I had to stop on 8 Mile road to take off my outer shell as I was getting too warm.  The Seven is fully operational as a commuter at the moment.  Updates will be getting the dynamo light and a new quick mount rear rack that has a lower profile behind my seat.

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.
