What to do before a ride

"Another excellent post Matt,I read some
of your posts,before every ride"

I love this idea.
As you may know I'm a big fan of getting into a positive mindset before you ride. The best rides  are the ones when you have plenty of time, feel well prepared and have gotten into a good mindset before you set off. 
Taking time to watch some YouTube videos.
Listen to loud music.
Have a coffee and read my posts like Ian. 
Read motivational quotes. 
Anything that gets you in the frame of mind to kick arse. What you do immediately before a ride has a big affect on the quality of the ride. 
Take 15 minutes to mentally prepare and reap the benefits when you are out on the trails.
