I have never biked twenty miles in one go.
It could be that this reflects some inherent limit.
Or it could be that I just haven't tried yet.

If I believe that it is an inherent limit, how might I test my belief?
Only by trying anyway.
If I try and succeed, then I will update.

If I believe that it is not an inherent limit, how might I test my belief?
Only by trying anyway.
If I try and fail, then I will update.

In either case, the test of my ability
Is not in contemplating what mechanisms of self might limit me,
But in trying anyway, when I have the opportunity to do so,
And seeing what happens.

Be careful not to find yourself 7 miles away from home on your bike and too tired to keep on cycling.
