Little Things Done Consistently
Some thoughts on consistency, the path to achieving goals and little things done over time... Also the Endurance Collective discord server and the 2nd 'bike of the week' feature!
Hi 👋, happy Tuesday! A big welcome to all the new faces who joined us since the previous article... I am excited to have you & hope you are taking the time to dive in and go through the growing archive and perhaps you even got a chance to check out the new Endurance Collective home?
I have a three part post for you today, starting with the 2nd installment of the all new ‘bike of the week’, moving on to some thoughts on consistency, the path to achieving goals and little things done over time… and finally, right at the end, the new Endurance Collective discord server.
Bike Of The Week #2
I’m super excited to show you some of the awesome bikes I have the privilege of working on. For the most part, the bikes people bring to my studio are their pride and joy, no matter how much they cost or how experienced they are as riders, etc. I believe in showcasing all types of bikes, not just the superbikes, because everyone should do bikes differently, in a way that they enjoy, riding a bike that fits their riding goals, personality, and budget. It can be a $25K bike, or a $500 bike, it does not matter!
The second edition is a Cannondale CAAD10! Click the button for more…
Focus On the Path
It seems like common sense, right? But its easy to forget about that and focus on just the end result alone, especially if the end goal is a bit one, and maybe one that scares you a bit.
For the most part, events, long sunny rides, etc are still a few months away (unless you are reading this from the Southern Hemisphere) and I think it is a good time of the year for a few reminders:
There will be up and downs. Progress is never linear
Improvements and breakthroughs are rarely sudden
It's okay to be average. Aim to improve at being average and it will lead to being great
What makes you better? The outcome of the process? Chase the start line, not the end result, and see how it feels when you cross the finish line....

On the Discord Server + A note for paid subscribers
As a follow up from my previous post, I worked on creating a discord channel. I tried various community solutions over the years, and they didn't really go anywhere mostly because they were not convenient for people to log in. I decided to start a Discord channel, because so many people have a Discord account already (in many cases, for group Zwift rides)!
It is a multi use space with some general channels, plus some for local group rides (which is not necessarily applicable for some of you unless you visit Vancouver), some for other fun things like meal ideas and bike travel stories and of course are a few channels dedicated to this publication, all of which location independent.
At this point, there are two channels specifically for this publication:
A 'latest article' channel where a link to the latest post is automatically shared. This channel is open to everyone in the server and to all Endurance Collective subscribers
A private channel for paid subscribers of this publication. The purpose of this channel is to ask questions for the 'Ask Me Anything' monthly feature, as it can only be a successful feature with more questions coming in! Note that once you join the server, you will not be able to see this channel until I manually add you.
Thank you for reading! Until next time,
