Tales of a cyclist - Part 8: All caught up
I have been commuting by bicycle for 349 days, traveled 7022 miles (the distance from my house to Hawaii), lost 21 lbs in weight, fallen off 3 times, had 6 stitches, snapped 3 chains, spent £200 on parts, saved £600 on train fares and have almost been knocked off by a handful of imbecile drivers. I may have shouted and cursed at those very same drivers.
I have been laughed at, embarrassed, mortified, angry, cold, wet, sweaty, sore and after all that I am still an evangelist. My resolve has never wavered. I have stayed true to the cause. I am a convert, no longer that lazy slob bound to the couch. I am free. I chose cycling.
So you are all caught up, I have taken you on a journey through the climbs and descents of my commuting career, to date. Mainly the descents, I think they are more amusing well at least in my opinion and my philosophy is to get some good out of the bad. I hope you enjoyed my tales and if you missed any of them here they all are in their full glory.
My cycling career is far from over, in fact it is still in its infancy and I will be sure to fill you all in when something eventful happens.
As for my steemit blog, I love writing but more importantly I love to make people laugh, so I am going to throw the same passion at it as I have done with cycling. Writing about anything and everything that takes my fancy, in a vain attempt to better myself as a writer and perhaps earn a few quid along the way.
Truthfully though, I have been inspired by the bloggers on here that have changed their lives through their continued hard work and persistence. I want that. I want that for my family, after all they are my world!
