Tired. I started work at 9 a.m., and I’m clocking out right now at 11:30 p.m. I have some cool posts on my mind (the role of arms in jumping!), but this will have to suffice:
“She who succeeds in gaining the mastery of the bicycle will gain the mastery of life.
“That which caused the many failures I had in learning the bicycle has caused me failures in life; namely, a certain fearful looking for of judgment; a too vivid realization of the uncertainty of everything about me; an underlying doubt — at once, however, matched and overcome by the determination not to give in to it.”
– Frances E. Willard, How I Learned To Ride The Bicycle, 1895

I’ll admit that my main weakness, on the bike and off, is “a certain fearful looking for of judgment; a too vivid realization of the uncertainty of everything about me; an underlying doubt …”
But I’m determined not to give in to it.
Tomorrow I have a meeting for a pump track design in Lyons, then I’m ripping me some Hall Ranch.
