I lost my cycling mojo. Monday I worked late and didn't feel like getting up at 4:30 AM Tuesday so I decided to bike to work Wednesday instead. Wednesday morning I got geared-up and headed out for my 20 mile commute. The first 6 miles I was asking myself why am I doing this? It is fricking 31℉ and I'm not having any fun. I turned around and went home. I didn't bike to work this week at all.
If you lose your mojo you need to shake things up a bit. Do something different. I decided to try a century ride at night. I left the house at 9:11 PM and returned home at 4:20 AM with 110 miles on the odometer. The temperatures were in the 60s℉. The traffic was light. Opossums were on the prowl. Saw 3 of them. Pretty nice night.
Ride on. ☮
