My story

[p]Novice Cyclist training for the 215+ mile Challenge of The Trans Pennine Trail[/p][p]100% of the funds raised will go to supporting some of the Humberside area's most disadvantaged families. The way that funding works these days is that charities need to "match fund", CatZero have to find additional funding and donations to match that of the main funder.[/p][p]What this will mean for you, is that for every pound you donate, the tax man will chip in the Gift Aid and then that amount will be effectively be DOUBLED when used to match fund against funding from CLLD or The Big Lottery.[/p][p]https://www.catzero.org[/p][p][br][/p][p]https://www.youtube.com/mevi[/p][p]https://www.instagram.com/mevi_vanlife/[/p][p]https://www.mevi.co.uk[/p][p]I continue the grueling cycle training that is needed for me to be ready to complete the CatZero Coast To Coast Cycle Challenge this summer. I've set a date of Friday 5th June for the start of the challenge. It's better to have a concrete date to aim for than leave it all very woolly.[/p][p]I was inspired by all of those who completed it last year, especially Caz White and Greg Virgoe. I saw two people who seemed otherwise "normal" turn into superheroes and power through 215+ miles over 3 days.[/p][p]I chatted with Greg on his return and asked him straight "could I do this?". He said yes, but I would have to train.... Oh dear.[/p][p]With the new year, I've made a personal pledge to calm myself down. I am a coiled spring half the time. I chew my lips. I pace. Working at CatZero gives me an outlet for this energy, but I sometimes struggle to just sit quietly.[/p][p]This is where the cycling comes in. So far IT DOESN'T quieten my mind or give me focus. I find myself thrashing through ideas in my mind. How I mount the cameras, editing in hotel rooms, live streams, blah, blah, blah. My ass hurts, my legs hurt, I'm out of breath, my heart is beating out of my chest! I still have hope that I can reach a zen state if only briefly!![/p][p]What have I gotten myself into? Skinny jeans, it seems. Painted on skinny jeans. 😂[/p]
