Cars of various types, price range, and colour. They're pulling slowly, their drivers stretching their necks out to find a spot among the many who've aldready done so on the freshly paved road of a new industrial park.
Quite the contrary of being a bike bum, I work full time as a mechanical engineer at Robotiq. However, I still manage to train on average 12 hours a week and to perform as well as I expect. Personally, I would say that, finding a balance between work and sport is complementary. Meaning that I have professional and athletic drives that pushes me towards performances as much as an engineer than as athlete. And if lets say that one day I lack motivation on my bike, well I find consolation at work or vice versa.
