I have just finished watching “Stand By Me” on blu-ray. I had forgotten just how good that film is. I would give it 10/10. I think it would make it into my top ten, if not top five films you have to watch in your life. Think I will be singing the theme song to myself for the rest of the day. So I feel sorry for people that I work with tonight.
So moving on from “Stand By Me” it got be thinking about the End to End cycle that I did in August 2009. I can’t believe it was just 2 years ago. Where has the time gone? This time two years ago, I would have been in the car on the way up to Killearn, then off to the starting point in John O’Groats the next day. I still can’t believe I did the whole cycle. With all the things that happened at the same time, like getting dumped, during it. The more I think about the cycle, the more and more I want to do it again. I was hoping to do it again this year. But the people I was hoping to go with all pulled out. You may all by thinking, you have done it once. So why do you want to do it again? That’s easy, it was so much fun. I also want to show myself I can do it again. Also next time, I think I would enjoy it more, since I know I can do it.
So I am going to make sure I do it next year. Even if I have to do the whole thing myself, which I would not mind, since I did most of it by myself last time. Well other then the first five days, when I was still with Mike. Then later on when I meet up with some other lads, also doing the cycle. So big hello to Ben, Edward and Henry.
Ben, Edward and Henry helped more than they will ever know. They reminded me why I was doing the cycle again in the first place. It was also nice to have people to chat to again, cycling for 16 days and only having yourself to chat to most of the time, did get a bit boring after a while.
Also doing the end was a bit part of the life for a good number of years, well before doing the cycle. Since I had been planning it on and off for years. So when I got Land’s End I was over the moon. Think it was one a day, I will remember for the rest of myself. At the same time, very sad. Since it was a end of chapter. I did had not needed the money, I think I would have turned around and cycled all the way back to the start in John O’Groats.
Sorry I hope I have not bored you all to much. In what may be one of the longest blog posts I have ever done. To read about the End to End cycle that I did in 2009 check out www.endtoend-cycle.com. I will of course also be using that website for next years CYCLE!
Bye for now! xx
