"Cycling in the Rain"
(a philosophy about the perfect moment)
People often ask: "Why do you go cycling in the rain, why not wait until the sun is shining?" So I always tell them the same thing: Everybody wastes time waiting for that perfect moment to do something; They always wait for the right time to present before they take any action. But what if that moment never comes? What if that time never appears? You will be forever left waiting, missing out on everything, never able to truly enjoy your life. I love cycling more that anything else in the world so I turn THIS MOMENT into the perfect moment! I make THIS TIME the right time! I just put on my waterproof coat, get out there & focus on what I love so much about cycling, rather than what I hate so much about the rain...
