After an enjoyable Christmas break, it’s all guns blazing now for the run up to my ride in April. With so much to do I can’t help but feel like my head is racing faster than my bike does! I’m really beginning to understand what a problem procrastination can be, certainly for myself. What is about this thing? And I can’t help but ask the question – does everyone suffer with this?

Procrastination as I understand it, is putting a job off, rather than looking at it squarely now and getting the job done. Sounds simple, and if it were that simple life would be so much easier. Maybe there is a specialist out there to help, or maybe he or she would say let’s leave it till tomorrow……

This week and next are dedicated to finalising my route, which at 2500 miles is no mean feat. I will have to contact over 30 rehabilitation centres around the UK including Norfolk, Scotland, Wales and Cornwall. And then working out where to stay and plan my route accordingly. Whilst my bike is due to have chain oiler fitted Friday evening, this will give me one less thing to worry about whilst riding. And give me a good excuse to catch up with a friend who has much riding experience.

With the first article to spread the word of my ride published in St Albans Now, hopefully the next will be in the Great Ashby The Villager due out in February.

Thanking everyone for there support so far, and wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

Leaving you with a quote from Rita Mae Brown, author, activist and feminist.
