I have been a LEBA member since 1998.
I borrowed my quote from Vince Lombardi, but it I truly believe that they are words to live by. “It’s not whether you get knocked down; it’s whether you get up.”
General Colin Powell also said it well when he said:
“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
Favorite place to ride: Beach Springs Mt. Bike Trails (AKA- Poplar Tent), Concord, NC. Tsali, NC ain’t bad either… the views are fantastic.
