"The more the outside world tries to reinforce an image of you, the harder it is to continue to be an artist, which is why a lot of times, artists have to say ‘Bye. I have to go. I’m going crazy and I’m getting out of here.’ And they go and hibernate somewhere. Maybe later they re-emerge a little differently."
— Steve Jobs
Haha, YES I do still ride! I just don’t race anymore. A few years ago I got a little burned out on cyclocross after driving to Portland every weekend for the Cross Crusade. I also sold 5 of my 6 bikes to fund my first year of starting Studio Shen Massage + Bodywork. (Better than a business loan, right?)
I still ride my little fixie Clementine as my commuter bike & I’ve started to miss cross so I think I’ll probably get another bike pretty soon. :) Who knows, maybe this will turn back into a bike blog once more!
