TAYLOR PHINNEY GETS IT...

"I've been thinking a lot about training recently. It needs to be personal. A lot of people feel like they need a coach because they need to have someone to be accountable to. But if you don’t have that accountability within yourself first, you can’t really expect yourself to be as good as you want to be.”

This quote from his recent Velo News interview...I've been preaching this mantra for years. People "think" they need someone else to get them on a program to finish 14th in their age group category at the local Roubaix. Well, fuck it, just go ride your bike a lot if you enjoy riding your bike a lot, and don't tell me about it because I do not really give a shit....you've been born with a limit to your natural engine, be happy with that, because no one else cares. If in all your insecurities you feel you need to social media and Strava every single bike rid you do, you are doing it for the completely wrong reasons, and just motivating the people who  already kick your ass in races to kick your ass more, trust me. So have a good day and go ride your bike because you want to, and that is all.
