This past weekend, I came to a fork in the trail. After slugging it out in the mountains for miles with friends, there was a decision to be made. It was time to either head back to the car or go for bonus miles on a steep, long climb with little payoff on the other side.
We are hit with this decision a lot in our rides.

The truth is, the only way to get back into peak riding shape is to do some things that stretch our abilities. Just sitting back and hoping the power comes back to our legs is not going to cut it. I sucked it up, tried to muster what was left of my legs, and hit the climb knowing it was going to hurt like hell.
