When I 1st started my riding I had so many thoughts about what the right way to ride and what it should look like. Books, articles, videos, and more, everywhere it seems there was an endless supply of folk touting that they have the answer. Lots of tools out there that you can buy that can make you a better rider. Just whip out that card and your on your way.
I was given this advice, I’m paraphrasing the message that I walked away with
“Don’t listen to what other people have to tell you about how you should ride and who they are and why you should listen to them. Watch them ride and then ask yourself if you want to ride like they do. If you do, listen to them, if not don’t, it doesn’t matter who they are or what everyone else thinks about them. You know what’s right in your heart”
