What is your secret for getting up and active on chilly, dark autumn mornings? For me, it’s setting audacious racing goals. Knowing I need to train keeps me pedaling through tough miles when I’d rather stay in my warm bed. This picture was snapped a few miles in on my first 50-mile bike ride at Little Red Riding Hood in June. When I signed up I hadn’t ridden a bike 10 miles in years, let alone 50. Training for and completing the ride felt incredible, and next year, we’re signing up for the century.
