It’s started to rain a little here. It’s been sunny for about 10 weeks straight pretty much. It’s been insane!
Now, I absolutely love the sun and the dusty trails. It’s so good.
But there’s something that excites me about it raining. It might sound a bit daft but I get really motivated to go ride in ‘bad’ conditions.
In the back of my mind I know that some people will look outside at the rain and think “I’m not riding in that!” then go crack open a beer.
I find it motivating that while they are doing that… I’m out riding no matter what the weather. It’s stupid really… because I don’t even race. I think it’s motivating though to do what some others
There’s so many benefits to riding in all weathers.
It toughens you up mentally.
It improves your technique.
It makes it physically harder (a muddy climb where you are struggling for traction is a lot tougher than a dry one!)
And it keeps your discipline high – if you’ve committed to a ride at X time on X day, you do it anyway. No matter the weather.
Just my 2 cents anyway for the day, take from it what you will 🙂
Have a brilliant weekend
