Most times, I find it difficult to carry on a conversation when cycling.
Usually what comes out when I’m trying to respond to a question are gasps for air and grunts on the way up yet another hill. And the chatter interferes with the voice in my head that’s constantly telling me to remember to breath. In. No out. And in again.
I figured that’s why headphone jacks were added to the treadmills at Planet Fitness and why riding two abreast is frowned upon by the Safety Dogs of cycling.
Apparently, I’m way out of the loop. Apparently I should have been doing double duty while pedaling, selecting riding partners who could help me better my financial standing.
Rather than stripes,plaids and golf shoes, many businesspeople are choosing cycling jerseys and bike helmets to help get their deals done.
At least that’s what I gleaned from a recent CNNMoney story about entrepreneurs and executives who are getting a little work done while in the saddle.
Used to be that all the big biz deals were done on the way to the 18th hole. These days plenty of those businesspeople are setting aside their golf clubs and pull carts in favor of a cycling helmet and clips.
I say, saddle up, and lets figure out how to make our first million.
