So; what happened to the Blog, Man?
What a long story that would turn out to be! So I’ll keep it short.
Around July 2017 there was a big change within my Family and since then things have escalated, twisted, turned and got crazy. Whilst this was going on I did try to upload the odd post here and there. I think there was a couple after July.
However, cycling became my escape. This gave me a chance to make sure I wasn’t going crazy under the stress and the pressure of what was happening externally and the forces that were being placed upon my shoulders. It never got a point where it was depression but it was certainly very draining both mentally and physically.
It all started in July(ish) and everything came to a head a few days before Christmas 2017.
As such, I just cycled and enjoyed cycling for the freedom it gave me between July and Christmas.
I did no events last year. Which is unheard of for me. I try to do at least one big event as it is a focus; but, as mentioned my cycling was escapism. I didn’t structure it and try to train.
I just cycled (and took the occasional picture).
Last year was not all bad though…In April myself and my Girlfriend bought our first house and in July (at the TdF) my Girlfriend became my Fiance.
Hopefully there will be more blog posts, events, review posts and a wedding this year too!
