C is for Challenge in the A to Z

April is the month of the Challenge. My second challenge for April  is the

#RealGainzriding

I have a fair amount of kooky ultra endurance friends it suffices to say, in the realm of swim-bike-run. A new Facebook friend is Kale Poland, that I met via Wayne Kurtz. Kale had a challenge last year: Ride your bike every day in April.

Which could sound like no big deal, except Kale lives in Maine and there were many pics posted of some extreme weather and bikes. I was impressed.

I’m in for April. The premise is bike ten miles on road or five miles on trail, every day, no matter what the weather. As Kale says;

“It is not convenient. It is often not enjoyable in any way, but you jam it into your life to create discipline and fine-tune your time management and build mental fortitude . An unreal boost in fitness seems to be the byproduct of #realgainzriding. I have really been looking forward to this day… The Challenge starts NOW!
MUST RIDE OUTSIDE EVERY SINGLE DAY
ROAD MINIMUM-10 MILES or
OFFROAD MINIMUM- 5 miles
GPS or Photo Proof required daily. Use hashtag #realgainzriding

Day One and Day Two have been easy for me, as these are days off from work and the weather has been nice. I’m sure I will be be building the mental fortitude some day soon!
