Making Your Tracklocross Ride More Mindful

Making Your Tracklocross Ride More Mindful

Today I took myself out on a tracklocross ride in conditions everyone else was complaining about. I though had the time of my life. As a result, I found I just had a new lust for life. Don’t fear the conditions; embrace them; even though they weren’t perfect, I didn’t let that ruin my day. Today, I was just in the moment. I was mindful.

Tracklocross Tyres: What You Need to Know

I will not recommend brands or sizing for tracklocross tyres; I will tell you about different tyre patterns and their uses.

In the grand scheme of things, it isn’t, but beyond the monetary value, these bikes inspired hope in many young people, which has now been whipped away.

I’ve Been Quiet for a Bit

Recently I’ve been quiet, I’ve missed events, I’ve missed sessions, I’ve hated my bikes, and I’ve mostly been lying in bed pondering existence. I’ve concluded that free will most definitely doesn’t exist, but apart from that, my mental health has been getting a kicking, and as usual, when my mind declines, so does my body.
