You win some you lose some. It’s always good to fail otherwise you never improve as much as you could. Losing makes you stronger and more determined. Go crash, go blow up on a climb, go bonk so hard you have to call someone to get home. It will make you a better rider as you’ll learn from experience and won’t want to make the same mistakes twice. Hopefully you learn some tips here on I Love Bicycling though to avoid making the same mistakes over and over again, unless of course losing is your style.

I started out in high school learning everything the hard way through a lot of trial and error and made it to racing with the worlds best. I hope I can give good insight into riding and everything that encompasses cycling.
