I'm ok with it though. I have sacrificed a lot of my ride time doing other things I love. Spending time with family being at the top of that list. I had a bikepacking trip planned 2 times this winter, but they were postponed. One due to butt cold weather, the other due to sickness in the family.
Early this winter I set a goal to have fun on the bike. I rode the rollers 2 times, and decided never to do that again. I don't enjoy it. I don't have the drive to and commitment to endure that boredom anymore. I just want to have fun and ride my bike. I also determined to do some long rides. I've checked Stoney Fork off my list, but I want a rematch. I have a new gravel weapon, it rolls fast.
But first the Stage Race. I'm going to go my "race pace" on day one and then see where I land. If I'm in the competition, I'll continue racing. If not, I'll enjoy the ride.
