What does cycling give you?
The main thing it gives me is freedom. It’s given me physical freedom, in the sense that I’ve pushed my body to places that I didn’t think it was possible to go, and I didn’t think I had that in me.
And on the mental side of it, the freedom it’s given me has been amazing. It gives me time to think. It gives me time to re-evaluate lots of things that are going on in my mind.
Being on a bike, and everything that I’ve been doing in cycling has allowed me to come out of myself. That’s been a very big change for me, in the years that I’ve been cycling. It’s brought me out of my shell.
