NB. If this is your first visit to my blog then welcome, if it’s a return visit then welcome back. I have two main blog pages and some links to the left. I have used a slideshow for each day which are a wee bit slow to load if they load all at once, but hopefully are worth the (short) wait…….. Or, if you click on ‘My daily posts’ to the left then you can view one day’s blog and one slide show at a time. Any feedback MOST welcome.
I have had a day to reflect on my 1100 mile, 16 day cycling trip and have come to realise what an important part my family and friends played in this achievement. Firstly it would not have happened it is wasn’t for my wife, Cathie. When I first mentioned my desire to cycle LEJOG I was able to follow this up with a whole lot of mental barriers. This is normal behaviour for me, the trains were too expensive and difficult to book, the weather was unpredictable, some of the roads might be a bit dangerous etc etc. But Cathie offered me loads of encouragement to work round these barriers and helped me get things organised.
Thanks also to everyone else who helped make it happen (you know who you are) and thanks to even Faith for making the rather scary banner picture me for my surprise home-coming party.
