Disney chain of Excellence

The early, early birds are coming down (yellow shirt) when the early birds (me) are going up. Bike was parked for a water break and snapped this pic as he sped downward.
Bicycling in Glacier National Park before Sun Road opens to vehicular traffic. Another photo break, capturing ascending riders making the slow and steady grind near Rim Rock (Highline Trail’s Logan Pass trailhead).

Leaders –> Employees –> Customers –> Reputation –> Improve

Employees stay if they are happy, and if they stay they get good at what they do.

Buzz Worthy?

The flywheel is spinning

Months ago i bicycled to Disney’s Animal Kingdom (DAK) and parked here while enjoying a few hours inside DAK.

Today’s 30-miler should be the easiest one in recent history.

Why?

Because 30 miles a day is becoming the norm.

It feels good.

Really, really good.

150 miles every week

Biked from Disney’s North border to Celebration Place.

When we returned permanently to Orlando in 1984, we owned one car.

My first Disney role as River Country Lifeguard required a 36-mile roundtrip bicycle ride from our apartment in Kissimmee.

The second role in Resort Hotel Operations mandated a 30-mile one-way bike ride from Poinciana to Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

Only completed the Poinciana roundtrip version once. Sixty miles plus an 8.5-hour shift, meant i left Magic Kingdom at 12:20AM and biked through the night arriving home at 2:45AM.

Grateful to have had a neighbor who worked the same 4PM – Midnight shift with the same days off, and had a pickup truck i could throw my bicycle into and catch a ride home 5 nights a week.

How Much Is Enough?

Only 22

Only 22 miles yesterday, not a full marathon.

You know what?

Those 22 miles were amazing on a Saturday morning.

Mileage like that is amazing any day of the week.

So grateful to be alive.

So grateful to be active.

Bicycle marathon seemed reasonable

Covid-19 has eliminated the option to bicycle through Walt Disney World. Interstate 4, known by locals as “The Monster” because of traffic volume, is tame enough for me to feel safe biking on it.

Bicycle marathon seemed reasonable.

Needed exercise.

Needed fresh air.

Needed thinking time.

Wanted to explore a video recorded story from my Disney Institute Summer School days.

The perfect mashup to bike 26 mile roundtrip and accomplish everything in this post.
