Journey to 100 / Milestones and motivation with ALLY LOVE

1Y6A8878

Next week, Ally Love clips into her 100th ride since joining the Peloton team. Find out what she’s learned along the way.

Ride along with Ally Love. Join her 100th Ride next Wednesday, February 22nd at 8:00 AM ET.

100 rides is such a big milestone. What have you learned over your past 100 rides at Peloton?

Whoa, 100 rides came fast! I’ve learned that the path is different for everyone and while we all may arrive at a milestone, the most important thing is that we all eventually get there. I’m proud to have been introduced to a family that is game-changing. The support of not only the community and loyal riders but my fellow instructors has been phenomenal. I’ve fallen in love with cycling beyond what I ever thought I could; it blows my mind!

Has the Peloton community pushed you to new goals as an instructor in any way?

Our community, our family, pushes me to work harder in class. I take every class like the riders do. I make a promise and I keep it: I work just as hard as you do. So I’m reaching new PR’s, high outputs, and overcoming fatigue, laziness and my own excuses now more than ever.

Any advice for riders out there looking to reach their next milestone ride?

Honestly, milestones are great rewards but they only last a day. I love to celebrate crossing the finish line but I put every race in perspective; one finish line is only the beginning of another start line. I like to use a milestone to reflect on what you’ve learned and how that knowledge can positively affect your path towards the next one.

What are you looking forward to in your next 100 rides as an instructor?

Meeting more riders and having new riders join in on the movement. I’m looking forward to getting mentally stronger, gaining more knowledge and just riding. It’s my way of life now, so I’m going to live!

What’s the best piece of advice you can give to riders to stay motivated while working toward their goals?

We all get uncomfortable, face discouragement and feel resistance but what makes us human is the opportunity to create space, change trajectories and find support to overcome, conquer and own that discomfort until its no longer a challenge.
