Come, relax and enjoy the ride!

I am excited to open my own cycling studio, Sol Pedal. To be doing what I love and have loved for the past 6 years is a blessing. Many of you have ridden many miles with me, so come back and lets travel together. Time flies as we cycle to an eclectic mix of music. I created the studio to be funky and fun, a place where you feel surrounded by happy, healthy energy.

So join the Ride. Its the only hour of your day that you can completely get away. We sweat, sing along, push each other and have a blast. Sure it's exercise, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun! After all, life is what you make it!

From a certain point onward there is no longer any turning back. That is the point that must be reached. Franz Kafka

Thanks to all who helped with the aid station yesterday. It is always so much fun to gather inside and outside the studio and work together!

Countless hours go into training for such an event as today. One of the first male riders past our station, blew a tire. He was actually the 6th out of the water (strong athlete). This gentleman had been training for the last 15 months to prepare himself for Sunday's race and had set a goal to complete the event in under 5 hours. What may have been a quick flat fix turned into an hour or so and a complete wheel swap. Was this man disappointed or defeated? No way, he had set a goal, committed to it and hopped on his bike after the hour setback and raced off to finish as a crowd of volunteers cheered him on his way. He would no longer meet the time he set for himself, but the goal of completing the event he would attain proudly.

I love that. Some may have hung up the towel and called for support to take them in for the day - no not him. It was a lovely thing to witness.

Set a goal, be driven and flexible enough to roll with the punches and finish everything you do as strong as possible.
