LEJOGLE 2020 – The Emptiness

It's a common feeling when you've been preparing for so long for something so big. The crash that comes after the event. It comes regardless of whether you were triumphant, or things didn't go to plan. The success of the event is just a volume button really to the emptiness that is invariably felt once the euphoria (or disappointment) wears off.

LEJOGLE 2020 – Preparation

Whenever you want to attempt something pretty epic, it's generally a good idea to have some kind of plan. And like a good Cub Scout it helps to always be prepared.

LEJOGLE 2020 – Big miles and big decisions

How do you get your head around the idea of being able to cycle 1800 miles in 10 days?
It's quite simple - you dont!
You can't really. You can get your head around the idea of a long ride, and even several long rides. But one single ride from the bottom to the top of the country and back again? That's a lot to process. Especially when you don't have a great track record time wise.

A record breaking decision

For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to be good at something. When I say good I mean really good.
I've wondered what it would be like to be one of life's winners, as that's never been me.

Riding Solo

Today is the day I sail to the Netherlands, for the biggest ride of my life.....except it’s not. 
No passenger ships are sailing, there is no race in the Netherlands or anywhere.
I thought I was ok with this.....
