Nº187 No Wealth like Health | My Atlas Mountain Issue
By Jon Woodroof • Issue #187 • View online
I know it’s been a few weeks since I last wrote. ; )
Here’s why:
It was this time last month when I sent the last issue, a week later I flew out to Marrakesh and started the Atlas Mountain Race (more about that below!). It took me nearly 7 days to complete it and two days after that, I flew to Florida for my 11th trip there. There I stay carfree & ride the #Terncouch all over. Whew!
After a long week in Florida, on the heels of such a gnarly ultra-endurance race in the desert and albeit successfully working remotely as I do each time, when I arrived back in Amsterdam a week ago: I had lots of catching up to do!
The whole Twotone team has been bustling on all fronts the past 4 weeks. We were also preparing for two big events here in The Netherlands & Germany. The one in Germany (at the same time & location of the now canceled Cycling World Düsseldorf), has now, due to the developments related to the Coronavirus, also been cancelled.
Our Dutch event will be much smaller and literally in the middle of a forrest. So, we’re still doing it & I can tell you more about it next week! :D
What I’m trying to say is: despite the brutal race, airports, timezones, and deadline after deadline, I’m grateful to feel fine. : ) I think after adventures, travels and challenges like I’ve had in the past month, its easy to agree: there’s no wealth like health! (hat tip Rob Quirk for the rhyme, though he attributed it to Adeline of Mercredi Bikes. Bummed not to see you both soon at Bespoked – yet another cancelled event on the the calendar)
As always, thank you for reading,
Enjoy this issue? Sharing is caring : )
