None of us like change and a lot of us are afraid of change; it takes us out of our comfort zone. But change is inevitable and happens almost every day. I’ve had a number of changes this year with new coaches for cycling and in the gym. These were scary propositions as I had only had one cycling coach and one gym coach, who had both taken me from the start to the top of the world! But I was ready for a change and some new challenges. So to this point that has been a good change so far. This past week I had a couple more changes to face, one I was really looking forward to and the other I was slightly fearful of.
The first change was when I dropped my Giant Avail Trike off to the Giant Hampton store to have my new Giant Envie Trike built! This was an exciting change that I was really looking forward to. I think that most people thought that this would just be a swap of one front end for another. But even that is a change for me with a completely different set up and positioning on the trike. I was also excited as a special paint job was done on the Envie frame celebrating the fact that I had become World Champion in 2013. I picked up my new trike on Wednesday and it looks amazing! Thank you so much to Jo Hall for organising this amazing frame and to the staff at the Giant Hampton store, especially Ben Churven the mechanic who put this incredible piece of machinery together!
