Continued Effort

A year ago, I put the finishing touches on my first book about the adventure of riding the 2014 Tour Divide.

During the race, my friend Brion texted me quotes. I received them when reaching a town that had cell service. Some quotes were funny like “Each year, hundreds of trees grow because squirrels forget where they buried their food.” Others were serious or excerpts from a poem.

Since it’s almost the one year book anniversary, let’s bring back some of my favorite quotes paired with some of my favorite pictures from the race.

Why are they my favorites? They show that effort is the main reason we accomplish goals. It’s not skill or genetics or luck. Instead, it’s all about continued effort day after day.





continous effort, unlocking potential




About Andy Amick
A little bit nutty in general, a lotta bit nutty about bikes. Each of his boys received a bike helmet for their first birthday and the three of them have been biking together ever since.
