Ride 365

Don’t let perfect get in the way of progress

I generally take part in 30 Days of Biking every spring since I found out about the pledge a few years back.

Confucius said: “Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.”

I “cheated” some times just throwing my leg over my bike and making a hot lap around the block when I’ve been rushed or plan old lazy. But in my book a butt on a bike, is a ride!

Voltaire: “The best is the enemy of the good.”

This year I want to Ride365! , with a small qualifier of a one mile every day of 2019 and no “Cheating”. I plan on using my bike trainer most of the winter with a few rides outside when the weather and trail conditions are good. I will also count riding a stationary bike at the gym. Thats what I did when traveling for work last week.

Shakespeare: “Striving to better, oft we mar what's well.”

I using Strava a social network for athletes & training log. I use it as my online activity log as seen here to track my rides and I’m thinking of starting up Zwift again so I can race my next door neighbor Dave Kjaer

I created a calendar to track my progress. Some day I may hook it up to my activity feed if I want to dive into the Strava API.

So far I have hit 21 of 22 days, I already failed!

Well not really hence the quotes about perfections is not the goal, just the carrot on the stick
