A to B


A few buddies and I rode in a friendly bike race in upstate New York over the weekend. Despite the competitive nature amongst our crew, we were all pleased with the outcome of our individual performances. This is simply because we FINISHED the race. Crossing the finish line was an achievement. We each started at point A and ended at point B.

 None of us are the next Lance Armstrong ( that’s for damn sure), but each of us powered our cycles from start to finish. These achievements are the building blocks to a greater self-esteem. A greater self-esteem leads to increased mental well-being.

I believe that anyone can experience this on a bike. However, it is important to note that each person will have a different “point A and B”, which is ok. The benefit comes from the journey between the two points.
