“There are psychological benefits to planning activities in the future, especially travel,… Future-oriented thinking is equated with proactive coping, a means of reducing stress through detailed planning, such as learning which flights to book to avoid layovers, and gathering the resources — including time and money — to make it happen… The pandemic, too, may have shown travelers that what they thought they could always do — namely, see the world — isn’t such a certainty” from Longer, Slower, Farther: Savoring the Prospects of Future Travel, New York Times
We see this time, when COVID-19 still controls much of our movement and travel choices, as a great opportunity to commit yourself to planning and preparing for your first cycling adventure with us. Over the next few months we will be highlighting each component of the 8-part series in our newsletter (subscribe here).
