A note from Mike

It's notes like this that keep me running this program every year:

Hi Kristen,

Today the weather was nice enough to get out and ride so I went for a ride on one of my regular local loops. This loop has a couple of climbs and one short but steep climb that always gets my attention. Though not a really hard climb, I always use this steep section as a milestone in my ride because it takes more effort than most to get up.

I'm riding along and I begin to get myself mentally ready for this effort when I realized I had passed over the climb a few minutes back! Thinking back, I flew up that climb without a thought and hardly noticed the others! That may say something about my mental health, but it definitely is a marked improvement in my riding ability. It is a small thing, but it is well known to me and it was such a dramatic difference that it made a real impression on me. I know this improvement is a direct result of attending PWP. Can't wait to compare my performances to some of the more challenging rides.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I'm very happy and just wanted to let you know.

Looking for other milestones,
