Secrets of a Cyclist

I ride my bicycle to ride my bicycle.

NEVER touch a cyclist’s gloves.

One day I went out without my gloves and went back to get them because I realized even though I don’t need them, I wear them anyway. Because it really helps when you have snot flying out of your nose and a runny nose is my biggest arch nemesis. Every. Single. Ride. Sigh.

Never ask to borrow another cyclist’s gear.

Especially helmets. Last year, I washed my helmet for the first time in months because the thought of washing it never crossed my mind. Hey, I wash my hair after EVERY ride okay.

Cyclists are usually commando under their padded cycling shorts.

Yes really— and it took me over 2 years to discover this amazing secret!! Where have I been?! You want the ultimate comfort to your private regions when riding and going commando totally works.

Cyclists love pain.

A bicycle is 100% powered by human strength and performance which means it’s a continuous battle physically and mentally but it is the combination of pain and pleasure, achievement and freedom that always lures us back for more. I can’t get enough of it!! It’s hard for non-cyclists to understand… but exactly like how I don’t understand the running thing.

Cyclists are a passionate bunch.

I’ve met a lot of new people on group rides and it is amazing to be part of a group where everyone is just SOOOOO passionate about something (in this case, cycling). Everyone is always upbeat, friendly and positive and I think that is because they are all fit and healthy …because they are cyclists afterall.

Do you have any secrets?

My background is in tech but now I am an expert on productivity-hacking, motivation, accountability, coaching, nutrition, and living a happy yet disciplined and committed lifestyle— and I’ve been doing so “effortlessly” for well over 10 years.

After years of studying and applying this skill we call DISCIPLINE, I’ve learned how important it is to be consistent to inspire others through implementing and cultivating good habits.

This is my journal and honestly I write but I rarely proofread. I don’t have time, and I gave up perfection a long time ago. I have been practicing this art of putting my thoughts on paper (or the web) since my mom gave me my first diary when I learned how to write. Just like my life, this journal is not perfect.
