Managing stress, and getting it done

In five days I’ll get on my bike in Blackheath, London, and get off at the Eiffel tower (you know where). It’s been a steep, steep learning curve and a lot of very humbling hard work, but my life as a student rider is about to culminate in graduation to the next phase of my cycling career.

Wish me luck on Saturday!

  1. Wow! Just read your “Headspace Challenge” post. That’s quite the goal you’ve set, but I think you’re absolutely right on the mark about how applicable the diss-writing strategy of manageable chunks is to many other aspects of life. Good luck on each on your 35-mile chunks! Sounds like you are indeed prepared to achieve something great!
