Maybe the Grand Loop and the Great Divide are doing the talking. Or perhaps it is the new toy I got, in the form of National Geographic TOPO, maybe it is both…but the imagination is running rampant, and so are the possibilities of what can be done on a bicycle.
But I am getting ahead of myself. Right now it is time to focus on the task at hand.
Right now it is all systems go. I feel hungry and ready to race. I am confident I have a good plan in place, and a good means of executing that plan. The order of the day will be forward progress. Always forward. If you are standing still, you are moving backwards…
Or as the great historian, politician and writer, B.H. Roberts put it, “Progress or Perish.”
