Bring something special

Good luck to everybody who is heading to Taupo this weekend to cycle some or all of the way around the lake.

I won’t be there this year, but I have been spending quite a bit of time on my bike lately in a desperate effort to be ready for the bike leg in a team relay at Challenge Wanaka in January.

Here’s a simple mantra from Lance Armstrong which might help you keep the pedals turning:

“Pain is temporary, quitting lasts forever!”

Possibly something to keep in mind as you approach Hatepe Hill.

And this, from somebody contemplating a seven-hour training ride:

“I’ll bring something special for the first 2:30hrs, but will need to borrow someone else’s special for the last 4:30hrs!”

Indeed.  Hopefully that won’t apply to any of you.

Whatever you do, ride safe and enjoy the day.

Remember it’s all about the story you can tell when you’ve finished.
