Hi, my name is Sybil, and I am one of those crazy people on two wheels.
Just a couple of years ago, on a car ride on the Blueridge Parkway, I came across a very bizarre spectacle. "People on bikes? Those people are CRAZY if they think they can climb Mt Mitchell on two wheels!" That was before I dropped 80+ lbs and a bucket of self-limiting beliefs. Now, with a new body and mind, one of my friends, Varinka, convinced me that I could climb this mountain - the highest this side of the Mississippi river. So, with my head down and new friends to encourage me, I made it. (I'm the one in blue) I am now, officially, one of those CRAZY people who climbs mountains on two wheels. Nothing compares to that sense of accomplishment, knowing that I moved that mountain. And I become a better person all around, with each mountain I put beneath me. That's what the active lifestyle is all about, right? Having fun being a better person.report abuse
