St Kilda East - Yarra trails - Carlton:
When CyclingTips started it was about tips for cyclists to make them better cyclists. I like that idea, and often wonder what I could contribute along that vein.

I consider frivolous things like "rules" for sock lengths, I've even typed out a few words on products that I think are worth their purchase price. What I think would have the most value, is also the hardest to achieve, and even harder to communicate. It's mindsets, and how to achieve them. The main mindset I think about is the willingness to hurt. The place you go to where pain is an inconsequential by product of being awesome.

Today I wondered about flow. About that place where you and your bike are one, and turns, berms and bumps are delights of centripetal force... today I wondered about the mindset of flow because I completely and utterly lacked it.
