HOW BIG IS YOUR BUT?
Is your “but” getting in the way of your ride? You can come up with a million excuses as to why you “shouldn’t” be taking the time to get on your bike for a few miles each day….work and family responsibilities are easy targets. You truly feel them as real things you can’t take time […]
HOW FAST CAN A BRUISED EGO HEAL?
I have written recently about the “off season” and how I look forward to moving my body differently during the winter months – repairing both my body and mind from the grueling pace of training when I am in season. But even a “Derailleur” can learn a thing or two about what does and doesn’t work. And that […]
EXERCISING YOUR CHANGE MUSCLE.
GET WITH THE PROGRAM! My job as your “Derailleur” is to remind you if you want to feel better, have more energy and perhaps even live longer – look no further than exercise. The health benefits of regular physical activity are hard to ignore. But let’s address the most forgotten and underdeveloped muscle in […]
ARE YOUR RESOLUTIONS ON CLEARANCE YET?
TURNING NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS FROM FICTION TO NONFICTION. As I walked into a major book retailer, I was assaulted with reminders that it was the end of December, which means resolution time, and that our new year’s resolutions often “go on sale or clearance”. Books titled Rid Yourself of Doubt, or Should You?”, “Tremble Your […]
FALLING IN LOVE AGAIN. My job as a Derailleur is to support you on your journey. Both your journey in-season and off-season. Your in-season journey may include becoming a stronger rider on hills. Your in-season journey may include mastering sneaking out of your house to get your ride in so you have “you time”. There […]
WHAT’S YOUR STORY?
I admit it, I am a junkie. I crave a hit everyday. I can’t seem to live without it. My newest addiction is TED.com. There are worse things to be addicted to I guess, but it still feels like being under its powerful grip is like I am doing something wrong. TED.com’s tag line […]
YOUR NUTRITIONAL PLAN.
Mind Food. Back in May I brought up the idea of idea of mental conditioning in addition to your physical conditioning. As a Derailleur, I see so many examples of my clients whose bodies are as fit as an elite athletes but their mental conditioning is lacking. Thus they perform exactly as they “think” they […]
RIDE NOW, ACT OLDER LATER.
A formula for living to 93. Although I have known my father for my entire life, I just learned the saying “Ride now, act old later” from him a month ago. He owned a t-shirt with that saying…and upon reflection; I realized that he truly led his life based on that motto. His life […]
Make it Count.
As The Derailleur at Terry Bicycles, my job as your “Life’s Coach” is “to make it count”. What do you need to make count? What if I told you everything? As a Performance Coach for my clients’ minds, I am reminded that placing a premium on a positive outcome – a personal best or a […]
Competition :: Testing your mental conditioning…against yourself.
As The Derailleur at Terry Bicycles, my job is to be your “Life’s Coach”. As a Performance Coach for your mind, I am reminded time and time again about the social comparison theory that my clients allow to rattle around in their minds. The social comparison theory sounds like, “She is so much better than […]

What shape are you in (your mind, that is)?
Testing your mental conditioning through awareness. In my introduction last week as The Derailleur at Terry Bicycles, I mentioned that I coach, among other types of clients, athletes of all shapes and sizes on their mental conditioning.

Even against the perfect backdrop, the joint Terry and Gore Bike Wear Tent Sale managed to bring its own source of excitement to […]
Learning to ride by learning to race
My collegiate cycling career began when I bought my first road bike at an outdoors store in Burlington, Vermont…in the middle of February. I did a few unsteady laps in the parking lot before packing my new baby in the back of a friend’s Subaru and driving home to wait for spring. It snowed the […]
