Riding Solo

By | July 2nd, 2015|BLOG, Celebration, Motivation, Training|

I have to admit that most of my riding is done with others.  This is a huge change from when I first started riding my trike.  I was slow, heavy and rode by myself, but then as I got lighter, fitter and started to become faster I was able to join group rides.  I absolutely [...]

There are times in life when things can just get you down.  For the last 6 weeks I have been battling with what started out as a head cold and turned into a sinus infection.  Unfortunately for me any type of infection can have an affect on my MS, so the last 6 weeks have [...]

It's been a while since my last blog.  In fact it has been almost 2 months but that certainly doesn't mean that life has stopped.  In fact life has been busier than ever! I think the main thing that has gone on in my life is that I finally finished writing, editing and approving my [...]

It certainly has been a long time since I wrote anything here but it's not that I haven't had anything to write, it's just that I've been busy.  After coming back from the World Championships I found that my trike was damaged and needed repair before I could ever get on it.  The damage unfortunately [...]

The people here in Greenville have been absolutely AMAZING!  I don't think that there has been a day go by where we haven't been stopped walking near the hotel and either asked what we were all about or wishing us well.  We even had one lady the other night want to pay for our frozen [...]

I met up with the rest of the Aussie team in Atlanta, Georgia and we spent the night at a hotel there before we headed to Greenville, South Carolina, which was about 161 kms from Atlanta. Getting to our hotel was pretty easy as we only had to travel on basically one highway all the [...]

Today was a really busy day for the entire team as we had 4 riders who needed to be classified, another rider to be picked up in Madrid, some just doing their own training and some of us wanting to go to the Road Race Course.  So needless to say people were all over the [...]

First 11 Days of Training Done

By | July 20th, 2014|BLOG, Training|

The past 11 days have definitely gone by fast!  Probably because we have mostly just been training, eating and sleeping.  Although we have had the odd trip into the city to have a look at shops or do what we are best at....eat!  The team has all jelled well together with most of us having [...]
