Shane Ralston, Ph.D.

I loved reading this post. As a former bicycle racer (last year was my final season racing in the Masters 45+ Cat 3s) and current coach, I agree that philosophy and bike training/racing are entirely compatible. I admire how Dr. McKinnon has been able to pursue tenure and train/race with so much success on both fronts. I took about a decade long break from bike training/racing while pursuing my Ph.D. and then tenure. I was just too overwhelmed with everything, between riding my bike 3-6 hours/day, traveling to races and the constant pressure to write and publish (though I have to admit that some of the best ideas I've had came to me while on long bike rides). Dr. McKinnon's race results are really impressive: https://www.road-results.com/racer/113669 Kudos!
