"Who has impacted, inspired & / or helped you the most in your riding journey and how?" Do you have an inspiring story to share?:dude My husband has been an amazing riding partner. He's never criticized me once! I DO ask for constructive criticism and he always gently puts it in a complimentary sandwich .... compliment + however you might want to try doing it this way + (and he ends with) a compliment again.... Before my bike was set up correctly and it was too top heavy, I used to have panic attacks in the morning before I rode. God helped me through that along with my husband & friends at the shop helping me get everything lowered and lowered and adjusted so I could reach everything comfortably. I also have about 6 constant riding buddies who have always encouraged me and shared candid honest stories of where they blew it, which were a huge influence on helping me become a better and more courageous rider. Most importantly, I've learned that I'm not alone. We all have something to learn every day on the road. Who's helped you?
