The overlooked part of riding that we all experience every time we are on the bike. Where is our mind at? How can we focus on the trail ahead and stop the other thoughts from coming up?
Before we can conquer trails, we must first conquer our minds.
Conquering the mind is probably not the correct phrase, but it makes for a decent headline.
'Conquer' implies a battle, an enemy, right vs. wrong. When it comes to the mind, it's you vs. you. You don't want that to be a battle - I guarantee you'll lose.
Instead of a 'battle' and 'conquering' mindset, an approach based in understanding, curiosity and honesty will go a hell of a long way!
