    Binary Decisions -Ep85

    Binary Decisions -Ep85

    Space Monkeys, today I talk about the concept of binary decisions and how they can be used in your planning of race tactics. These are “cutting tools” that are best used in the context of Perspective and Presence. Ones and Zeros are the most fundamental elements of how we have boundaries and tension in the world. In relationship, they are how we negotiate what we want vs what someone else wants. Once this concept is understood, it can make relating to other people simpler.

Learning every time

I only discovered Cycling In Alignment recently, when I decided I needed more non-world-affairs/politics pods. I have learned things I can use from every episode I’ve listened, and have a list of topics to “go forth and dig” on as well as reading the Midlife Cyclist book authored by one of Colby’s guests. One episode I had to listen with an atlas of human anatomy open in front of me, which I consider a good thing! I especially appreciate Colby’s coverage of topics for middle-aged cyclists, as I am 57 and actually emerging from a couple years of less activity. All around great.

No detail ever ignored

I’ve known Colby for years. I’ve known him as a racer, a coach and friend. I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt, this is 100% authentic Colby Pearce. This isn’t a podcast to zone out at work and listen to in the background. Take it slow, listen - don’t be afraid to rewind and re-listen - the info will definitely help you in your life, not just cycling. Great podcast with an insane amount of information!
