Yesterday, I received a message from Ewan who is training hard for the Raid Alpine challenge. Despite being hundreds of miles from the other Cyclopaths and therefore having to do much of his training alone and with the added challenge of the harsh winter weather on the east coast of Scotland, his enthusiasm and enjoyment of cycling warmed my heart.
I’m trying to remember but I think 🤔 today was only my 5th or 6th ever ride over 50 miles (just slightly over 50 I hear you say!! 🙈😉😆) and definitely my first 💯 + miles week!! 👍🏻🎉 This cycling lark is definitely getting obsessive! 🤓
To be honest, I think it’s also very good mentally; it slows me down from the daily dashing around running the business; gives me space to think about all sort of random yet important stuff that I might not otherwise have allowed time for; gives me space and pace to enjoy the local environs; makes me appreciate how lucky I am to be where I am in life; and the feeling of ‘satisfaction’ tiredness at the end certainly enhances that overall feeling of positive well being.
Thank you again for getting me involved, I’m sooooo enjoying the journey 👍🏻😊🚴🏻♀🚴🏻♂🚴🏻♂🚴🏻♂
Thank you, Ewan, we are sooooooo enjoying having you in the team
I loved your message, and am delighted that you too have discovered the many joys of cycling.
