A time for reflection

It has been a while since I posted anything on this blog and I think it is fair to say that the past 12 months or so have been challenging for everyone on all corners of the globe. A global pandemic, the likes of which the majority of us have never experienced before. In the face of adversity, it is incredible how people have come together to support one another, how priorities have shifted and generally how humanity has shown its strength. My bicycle has never been so important to me as it has over the past year. Without it I can honestly say I would have gone completely mad. It has been the source of both my physical and mental health through this difficult time. I feel for those who have been forced to isolate indoors and am so very thankful for the opportunities I have had to stay active outdoors. I think its fairly apparent that there has been a boom in cycling as a result of the restrictions on other types of exercise. As we ease out of lockdown, hopefully for the final time, it would be nice to see the cycling trend continue. Lets hope that at least some positive changes come about from such a period of worldwide tragedy.
