Why I Ride

August 6, 2012 | By | 3 Comments

I ride my bike because every time I swing my leg over the top tube it makes me feel young, like when I was eight years old, and couldn’t stop pedaling and smiling because I was so enamored with the new found freedom and adventure that two wheels provided.

I ride my bike because each pedal stroke transports me, physically and mentally, to a place where endorphins quickly replace reality.

I ride my bike because I am competitive and thrive on the simultaneous sensations of being humbled and inspired, beat down and fulfilled.

Here at Roctane Ultra Endurance we’d like hear how and why you’re pushing your physical and mental limits, so be sure to leave us a comment. Who knows, you  might be chosen to receive an eight pack of Roctane Ultra Endurance  for sharing your thoughts, so what have you got to lose?

About the Author (Author Profile)

GU Energy Labs is the parent company of the Roctane Ultra Endurance brand. GU Energy developed Roctane as the performance energy choice for ultra endurance athletes. The first Roctane Energy Gel was designed and tested 6-7 years ago by athletes competing in the Hard Rock 100 Ultra Marathon trail run who needed a portable, efficient and effective energy source for an event that can last over 24 hours. Since then GU Energy Labs has continued to work with these same ultra endurance athletes to develop and expand the product lineup so athletes can continue to go fast and far.

  1. I ride because it vastly expands the area I call “home”. My home now stretches over a hundred km+ radius, and that’s a very freeing feeling.

  2. I run marathons and I push myself physically and mentally because I want to see how fast and how far I can run just for the fun of it!
