“Life is What Happens To You While You’re Busy Making Other Plans”
I heard that quote a few times over the years, but recently it has become more profound and I firmly believe that to be the case. Life is a journey with interactions with people and situations that can change the course of your life. That’s not to say you have no control and you should just bounce off one life’s event to another and see what happens. I think it’s more about how you deal with life’s unplanned situations and make the most of what you have.
I believe that we are always growing and changing, for some of us, it’s on a conscious level and for other’s it’s on a subconscious level. Life may not always be a bed of roses but remember the person you are and be the best version of you.
Dreams become reality
In 2013 my dreams became a reality. I packed in my job and went for it. In June 2013 I took the ferry from Portsmouth to Santander in Spain and started my trip. I rode the coast of Spain, Portugal, South of France and finally ending in Italy. The trip lasted for three months and I loved every second of it. Every day was a new adventure and an experience at every corner. From being, arrested for not using a bike helmet in Spain to staying in a brothel in Marseille are just a few of the memories I have from my trip. I can honestly say the whole experience changed me in so many ways. The freedom from the day to day routine of life made a lasting impression on me and to this day I dream of doing a similar ride again. I
kept a blog of my trip and called it (Keep the coast of the right). This was my first ever blog.
For Those Who Suffer We Ride
That trip left me with a new found confidence and self-belief that took me to so many new places and adventures in my life. Late in 2014 I started a new job which took me to new countries and then in 2015 I rode with a group of guys called “The Fire flies tour” The Tour is a charity that supports Blood cancer research. On that tour I rode 1080 kilo meters and climbed 18 mountains in ten days. This was an amazing trip and I thank the Fireflies for the opportunity to ride with me. For Those Who Suffer We Ride. The motto of the Flies.
To this day a ride every day and love it. I feel cycling has saved my life and this is why I’ve called this blog “Cycle For Your Life”. In this blog I will be writing my thoughts and views on cycling, wellness and my life views.
Peace and respect
