This one should be obvious, but it happened to me this morning and Tuesday. When I was riding on Tuesday I got stuck in a deep rut on a short hill. The rut was deep enough that I couldn’t pedal and had to walk up the hill. Today I crashed while trying to get out of another rut on the same road. Everyone gets in to a rut from time to time. It could be a dead end job, a bad relationship or slacking off. The best thing to do is stop and pull your bike out of the rut so you can get back on and start pedaling and moving forward. You have to change the thing that put you in that rut so you can move forward successfully.
