The Nine Mile Ride
“It’s been true in my life that when I’ve needed a mentor, the right one shows up.” –Ken Blanchard
In this essay episode, Dr. Gill reflects on the impact cycling and mentors have had in his life over the years. This essay covers a lot of territory from learning to ride a bike for a cub scout bike-a-thon in the 80s, to a hilarious encounter with Bo Jackson at Bo Bikes Bama in 2016, to riding the New York City Five-Boros ride in 2022. Over the years, cycling has been a way for Bryan to gain clarity through the outdoors. This was never more true than when Bryan had a transformative nine-mile-ride that rocked his world in 2018.
