‘The Final Nail in the Coffin’
“An event that causes the failure of something that had already started to fail”
It was perhaps inevitable but after a full 12 months and 7,500km of training, 90,000m of hill climbing and being as ready as we’ve ever been, we’ve had to cancel our challenge in the Alps again.
In the grand scheme of things, with the impact of Coronoavirus on individuals and communities, I’m not really complaining. I’m just taking a moment to feel sorry for myself (and the others) before finally putting this challenge to bed and coming up with a ‘Plan B’.
“An action or set of actions for doing or achieving something that can be used if the preferred method fails”
If we can’t cycle the Alps, there are plenty of other roads available to us. We are currently exploring options…………
‘C’est la Vie’
“Situations of the type that happen in life and you cannot do anything about them”
We can’t control the quarantine regulations and therefore we have no control over having to cancel our Alps challenge. We do have control over how we react to it. As with most things in life, we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves down and make the most of the situation. Watch this space!
