A couple of things have spurred me on. The first one being a funeral. They're always good for reflection and for those moments of clarity where you have that epiphany! The second was a letter from my local Hospice asking if I wanted to partake in this year's Challenge. A piddly little jaunt around the Dales of Yorkshire for this year? Nope, they're going the whole nine yards this time with the "once in a lifetime event" of Wakefield to Roubaix in 3 days! About 260 miles in total, including cobbles!
I must be a certifiably, crazy madman to agree to do this, especially with just under one year of cycling under my belt! Tonight I did just that!
