If you don’t put yourself out there, you have zero chance

I was watching the Vuelta yesterday and enjoying Ben King finishing and thinking about the effort level when I watched his collapse after the finish line.

Chad Haga retweeted this tweet

which got me to read the piece Ben King wrote.

One of his favorite quotes was “direction, not intention, determines destination” (Andy Stanley). 

From his article I take the JA philosophy of ” If you don’t put yourself out there, you have zero chance. ” as well as ” Live in the moment but keep moving forward.”

It matters to me as my training has been affected a lot this year and I do realize that speed and capacity changes every year now, in ways I can’t expect.  So I need to focus on the fact that some of this are highs and lows and to make the most of every day!



Join us for our annual Open House and Builder Showcase! We’ll have food and drinks, and a plethora of custom bikes on hand. We are also offering the chance to see where our parts are made on a rarely offered shop floor tour.
Allied, Argonaut, Breadwinner, Caletti, Crema, DeSalvo, Moots, and Seven will all be showing bikes made custom for this showcase. We’ll also have ENVE composites and Santa Cruz showing off some very special bikes from our sponsored riders.
To make sure we have enough beer and food to go around, please RSVP here.

We hope you’ll come by and raise a glass with us.

And what a day it was. 

NEW:  I did not realize that one sees the light in the shadows of trees between leaves as crescents and that was totally amazing.

EVENT: Riding out was nice, but riding back with long lines of cars and neverending bikes with smiles was awesome.
