Jon Seaman our VeloPro CMO reflects on his experience at the Swift Summit 200/100. In our winner take all, no time for losers' society, is there room for failure? Does context matter? Can we learn anything from careful introspection and a detailed examination of our mistakes, or are we just making excuses?
The Swift Summit 200/100 is a unique ride. It has a ton of soul. Trevor Spangle, the event director, is a genius at building a supportive cycling community. One of the many touches that makes the event special is the anonymous letter program. Each participant sends in an anonymous letter of encouragement. This letter is then distributed blindly to another rider. Trust me, the encouragement is needed. The Swift Summit is a very demanding event. This is the letter that Jon Seaman our VeloPro CMO sent into the loving ether. His identity now revealed, he hope it inspired a great ride. Most importantly, he hopes it will inspire you for next event.
