Canada Challenge Update:

In one of my Facebook posts recently I said “I can feel my world starting to narrow…” Basically because I know the time has come to throw everything else aside (as much as I can) and just focus on the task ahead – riding my bike across Canada, as fast as possible. I don’t want to cut corners. I don’t want to wing this. I want to, or rather need to, do this well.
 
I have always been slightly reckless with my life. I have never cared too deeply about my personal safety. That was until I had three beautiful girls that call me Dad. Now I find I am buying things like reflective cycling vests, wireless earphones, multiple sets of back lights, multiple front lights. I think about bears, fatigue, sleep deprivation and bears (I said that already, didn’t I?). I am highly appreciative of having a support team I trust and enjoy being around. In short I am getting old, but not old enough to become reckless again. That can wait until my kids have left home and I can start skydiving again, or something like that, in my 60’s.
 
Make no mistake though. I know I am more conscious of risks, but I will be giving this record a massive crack. Anything less for me devalues the reason I do what I do. I am riding for disadvantaged children and families on the outskirts of that small city of Ndola, Zambia I used to call home. I can never forget that. So I know it’s gonna hurt as we push hard for Halifax.
 
Thank you for all your support to date!
