A few years back I had a couple of years off band that corresponded to a phase of getting fit. I got myself a racing bike (hard to believe if you see me now) and joined a club. I didn't do too badly so long as we avoided steep hills and I ended up as an Ok club time triallist and did some long distance rides (200 miles in a day was the most). I thought, what if I'd taken this up when I was 16? Has the world been robbed of a great cyclist (doubt it!)? What could you have been good at / famous for / got rich at if you hadn't spent countless hours at band?
