Am I Worthy? A Question Every Cyclist Except MAYBE Peter Sagan Grapples With.

August 2019

I have a Punisher decal on both road bikes. I’m particularly fond of the one on my 5200 but like the two smaller decals on the Venge just as well.  I like to look at the decal when I’m hurting and wanting to quit – they help me to dig deep when needed.

I wonder, from time to time, to myself, whether I’m worthy of displaying it on my bike, though.  Taken the wrong way, as if I were arrogant enough to think of myself as a Punsiher of cyclists, it could lead to… uh, unnecessary misunderstandings.

In the end, a friend gave me the originals that went on the Venge, so I justify it that way…  And if I have to have the discussion among friends, so be it.  In the end, when I’m in the pain cave, I like looking down at that decal for a little boost.  I also have to remember that which is most important; I am fast enough for what I want to put into cycling.  Cycling makes me happy.  I have no desire to work hard enough at it that I lose the fun.

    Careful BgdyJim you’re treading into concern for what others think-if it’s good for you that’s all that matters

    Sod them. You’ve earned the badges. After all, the punishment is to ourselves, when are digging that little bit deeper. No-one else is getting punished (unless they’re trying to keep up, ha ha!)
