Looking out the window at the Firth of Forth and sitting on a comfy sofa with a glass in my hand as I write this. Only a slight dull ache in both my quadriceps reminds me that up until yesterday I had been on the road for 7 months. I keep having to look at my bicycle computer to check the odometer to make sure its real. Yup, every time I look it still says the same thing
Every single one of those 209 days in the saddle called for determination and an ability to keep going whatever the weather, no matter how sore my body was and however bored of turning pedals I was. It was the thought of cycling into Edinburgh and being home, finally, that kept me going…just one revolution at a time.
I have so many more great photos from the last month to sort through and a few funny stories so keep checking back for updates, there really are some stunning images from the last few weeks on the road. And PLEASE don’t forget to donate if you already haven’t, just a few pounds will make a difference.
Also, it’s time to CeilidhInstead here in Edinburgh. To celebrate the money raised for SAMH and to say a big thanks to all of CycleInstead’s supporters we are having a fundraising ceilidh on Friday 11/11/11
please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details
Thanks for all you support and see you soon,
