I bought a new bike. It took me months of research, but I finally pulled the trigger on the Trek Allant+ 8s. The plan is to use this e-bike to commute to and from work and around the city. When I was in college I didn’t own a car and hated to drive (I still do). I didn’t get my drivers license until I was 18 and then didn’t drive again for almost 5 years.
To overcome fear you must face it. My fear was riding my bicycle in the pouring rain. That’s why I made it a personal mission to get up and ride through the pain, through the discomfort. My hands were unbearably cold. It was not easy and my stomach would turn as I walked out the door. After about two months of riding whenever it would rain I started to embrace it and understand how to handle it better.
