Is it just me or does everyone seems to long for new biking stuff every spring? There is something about the changing of the weather that makes you start thinking about biking… and all the great new stuff out there.
Every year it seems whatever you have is outdated, old, and no longer “cool”. Of course it does not (or does) help that all the magazines put out all their review issues this time of year.
This year I decided to enjoy what I have and not focus on what I don’t. There is an old expression that states “Happiness isn’t getting what you want but wanting what you have”. This applies to many things about life, but biking especially. I am not saying there is not a time to get a new GPS or new bike gadget or even a new bike. It is just that I feel it is better to spend your energy on planning where and when you will ride, not on what!
Let me know your thoughts on this subject..
