➖From start to finish ➖ I had no idea what to expect. Wasn’t even sure I was ready for this, but I cycled last weekend to wales to prepare and I’m so glad I did, it got super gritty around the hours of 2-3am, I would definitely recommend doing this with a friend to help survive the night time crazy. The relentless lack of vision was a real test, and a sign I need better lights 😂 . This ride taught me so much, always- in the art or staying present, being in the moment 100%, not worrying about what might be around the corner ... because anyway half the time you can’t even see it- you just have to face it as it comes and climb the hills as they appear, I wouldn’t have changed a damn thing. I was so elated to make friends with two wonderful folk at around 3am who kept me company for the rest of the ride- keeping talking helped no end to help see me through to the end- which as you can see I am beaming from ear to ear, having gone from such darkness- into one of the most beautiful daybreaks I’ve ever known, feeling emotions of all varieties, I couldn’t believe I had made it, 9pm till 9am, with the folks company I had realised there were food stops on the way, one of which I missed at cheddar so my panic about the water situation faded at that point and being told there would be hot food warmed my soul! Shit curdled coffee at 4 am never tasted so good! Ride time total was about 9 hours 40, with adequate little breaks throughout. Needless to say when we got to the cafe at the other end I stuffed up on all I could get my hands on to refuel. I felt broken. But mad happy- so much you can achieve if you just start doing, and keep on pushing, or pedalling. .
