Trail to Zen: Fruits of their Labors

It all comes down to one day, to a few hours, one chance to get around the course. The preparation, the worrying, the countless miles on the bike pounding out miles hoping that they will do the trick on that one day. The Trail to Zen culminates on race day. As the racers line up next to their opponents, their nerves are all over the place, there is doubt, there are those lingering thoughts of what if. And then the gun goes off and everything fades into the background as the work begins to pay off. Those who have put in the time and have the mental fortitude to persevere find their stride in the first climb and slip into their place of Zen. All those worries disappear and it’s just a repetitive mantra of “Keep pedaling!”
