Over the past year, I've found myself in a rut every now and then. I'm a creature of habit and sometimes I find myself just doing the same routes and doing the same things over and over. Whenever I get like this or feel this way, I like to change it up. Here are a few suggestions to change up your ride and give you just a little bit different experience.
Explore. Take a turn on your route just to see where it goes? You never know what you might find or see. Exploring will make your ride feel a bit different and a bit more adventurous than your last ride.
Take stuff to cook a meal. Stop. Breath. Take in your surroundings. A mid-ride break just might be what you need to freshen up that boring old route.
Invite some friends on a ride with you. I frequently ride alone, but I find sharing a ride experience with a friend makes it more memorable and inspiring.
These are just a few ideas to make your old boring ride different or to add something to your route. If you've got more ideas, feel free to post them up in comments. We are always looking for inspiration.

Growing up as a Minnesota farm boy, I developed an appreciation and love for land and open space. This appreciation has fostered two passions, cycling and photography. Both of these passions provide freedom, encourage me to explore and foster creativity. More importantly though, my journey with a bike and a camera reminds me that the world is big and I am small.
