The trick is to force yourself to change the habit. My gym clothes go in the bike (I ride to work). I can't go home until I stop off at the gym first. If I go home it's over.

"Don't complain, just train". It takes less time than you think.

Can't ride because of snow on the ground? CROSS TRAINING! I love skiing. Too bad anything South of WV is ice skiing.

We even have a class for riders 66 yrs & older. I just hope I still want to at that age.

Too old . . . . LOL!
