One way to ensure motivation on a lousy looking day is to agree to ride with someone.
It looked wet and threatening this morning, but I had a planned ride with Canadian friend Martin – so no quitting. And as usual, once I was on the bike, it was more than worth the effort – even a little sun.
Good hard 65 kms on local Swiss roads with the 5km climb to Challex in France in the middle of the ride. And a Pizza in a little café at the end. Civilized.
