|What's on your mind when cycling solo?||Fez|

|Besides the obvious like staying safe and being aware of your surroundings, what do you think about?
Cycling (technique, intensity, drills)?
Nothing at all (mind just wanders as you unwind)?

|This morning I was in rare form. I had a lousy training race last night. Although I went into it feeling like a champ. I went to bed late and after waking a 3am, couldn't fall back to sleep. Feeling inspired by yesterday's early morning ride post, I left the house on my bike a 5:30am. I pre-rode this weekends race course on my way to work. Thinking the whole time, "maybe I'm not as strong as I thought I was."
It was a lovely ride. (sarcasm)

|When I ride solo, it's usually because I want to go hard. So I don't think about much except my current effort level and what may be coming up. The few routes I typically ride when solo I have ridden a thousand times, so there are few if any surprises along the way.
I haven't done a lot of solo rides this year, but generally, if I'm not going hard, my mind will definitely wander.
Swimming laps in a pool is when I think about life and family.

|I usually start out thinking about technique and concentrate on my pedaling, breathing, etc. After a while though I drift off and go into this place in my head where I don't feel anything, vaguely aware of cars, don't notice that there is a bike beneath me and am just in heaven.|

|Damnit, I can let the dude wearing the untied tennis shoes with the laces in the chainrings, riding the noisy Walmart 10 speed pass me (he's been drafting me for 4 miles!).
Hey, I actually passed someone!
