If you’ve been following our Instagram stories, you’ll know Avi’s been on a personal Quest to 1,000, trying to ride a thousand miles on his bike in June. With over a full week to go Avi is on pace to hit his goal.
Avi’s been riding for years. He started riding to get in shape for hockey and fell in love with the sport (We Like to Ride Bikes (bulowjewelers.com). He rides to work and with groups, up mountains and at home on the trainer. It’s such a great way to get and stay fit, enjoy being outside in nature, and even a way to do something good for the Earth.
This is about pushing yourself – Avi has talked with other riders and seen posts on Strava hitting 1,000 miles in a month. It always seemed like such an enormous goal that was out of reach. “Only serious riders can do that”. Putting in the miles, waking up early, struggling through it, Avi is now on pace to hit his personal goal, with only 354.1 miles of the 1,000 left to go. Even if a challenge feels too big or too far away, everyone can set goals, work hard, and achieve them.
We’re big believers in put your mask on first take care of yourself – that taking care of yourself usually leads to happiness and if you can direct that happiness to helping others in a generous way that actually increases your happiness. If we can get these things reinforcing themselves those positive feedback loops can lead to a better life.
