Remember back in October when I crossed the 100,000 miles ridden mark? After that I started feeling ambivalent about my riding. I didn’t have any particular goals or reason to ride, so I just kind of went out and did whatever. Sometimes that feels great, but it’s like too much vacation: At first you think, “I couldn’t possibly spend too much time on vacation!” But after a while, you kind of wish you had something specific to do.
Without group rides to keep me motivated, I needed a goal.
