“Sport can be thought of as a spiritual journey, one that combines physical and mental connections. This morning, find an emotional connection to exercise. An emotional connection to every living thing in this universe.” This is how our guest instructor, Teresa, began the African Storm ride last weekend. We rode not by numbers, wattage or cadence but simply ‘to ride’ while being encouraged to shift our attitudes about what is possible and loosen our tendency toward critical control and judgement to be more in the moment. After relaxing, settling in and centering, we were guided to tap into the Intuitive Teacher within, where there are unlimited amounts of potential and information, all while watching stunning, inspirational footage from around the globe.
We will continue to weave these types of theme rides into our monthly Ride Profiles to enhance your training experience along with specific training sessions and ride simulations that develop stamina, strength, speed, power and recovery to guage progress. Some rides are geared more to challenge your physical body, some to focus your mind and some are more of a celebration for your soul. You will find that we do, indeed, grow, blossom and unfold according to the principles of nature by participating in the process, cultivating patience, concentration and curiosity. Join us and Ride Responsibly. Check out the Cycleops Monthly Ride Profiles for next month’s video ride Living your Legend.
