Dave's been a Twitter friend for a while. I enjoy seeing his tweets, especially when he shares photos of his awesome experiences using our products. As I look at the photos, I realize he is a very active guy. I enjoy learning about what motivates and inspires others, so I decided to ask him a few questions. His answers are brilliant, beautiful, and from a place we can all learn. Perhaps you will feel like I did... ready for some great exploration! What’s your favorite activity and why? My favorite activity has to remain cycling. I love it for the challenge and the simplicity. I can leave my house and depending on the direction find any type of terrain to explore. To me there is always something new to see along the way and I also find it to be a 'rolling meditation'. I love cycling for another stranger reason: it taught me to ride hard without having to "win". A long time ago I realized the competitiveness was edging out the joy. Each year I saw I had to put on more miles than the last, go faster that the previous month. So one year I noticed I was within about 50 miles of a new record, and even with a month or more of riding weather, just stopped. It was a changing point to realize you can get better without letting competition be your driver. Anything you haven’t tried that you’d you like to? Dave: There's not just one thing that's for sure. A long yoga retreat (at an exotic location). An expedition - like a few weeks climbing in the the Northern Cascades or even Alaska. Surfing. Backpacking New Mexico. Solo cycling across the US.
