Myelination required...

https://www.google.com/amp/s/blog.buffe ... erformance.

I,ve not been riding for over 3 years and I feel rusty and can,t go round the bends the way I used to be able to. This happened to me about 10 years ago too when I had developed some sort of pain in my legs which made me stop riding for a couple of years. Then when my legs were better I practiced and got that ability back to ride fast on corners again.

But after 3 years of not riding again I,m back to square 1 and need myelinating to get back into it again. I didn,t understand the reason why this happens until I read this article and learned about this process of Mylination. Fascinating stuff. 8)

I do that of course kwacky, thats the first rule but throwing the bike into a corner at a fast pace I,m talking about which needs a lot of practice to get over the fears. It is that feeling or confidence that goes away once I,ve been away from biking for a few years.

Hehehe, it is a bit long winded Rossgo you,re right mate.
(lol)
Basically what seemed interesting to me was the explanation of this notion of practice makes perfect and why. Its simply because with practicing a tissue named Myelin is produced that speeds up and strengthens the nerve signals travelling in the brain which helps us become better in whatever that we do. Thats a summary of it that I found interesting. (rock)
