Can't wait to finally get out and ride (big thank you content).
Not sure if this should be in the chat forum or here so here goes –
After possibly the hardest couple of years of my life and not going out riding at all in about 6 months things are finally coming together.
I really wanted to say thanks to everyone, over the year, for all the advice regarding jobs, engagements and more importantly dealing with my partner becoming ill and moving to a new area due to this.
Over the last few months me and Claire, as you know got engaged, and I finally secured my teaching position. At one point we stood to lose our house and were told we may never be able to have children. We’ve now had news this isn’t the case and, with the correct medication, we can after all try for a family.
During all of this I’ve not had the energy or desire to get the bike finished or getting out to ride.
Now there is light at the end of the tunnel and we can start trying to enjoy life again.
I’m finishing building the bike today, treat myself to some new pikes, and Claire has her last weekly hospital visit for a month. Sometimes my priorities were wrong and I’ve learnt a fair few lessons too.
So a big thank you to everyone who has given advice, or told me to man up, you really don’t know how much this site and keeping me occupied has meant to me.
Hopefully I’ll get out on the next pootle or meet up with a few local riders.

Congratulations on getting engaged.
Excellent news re: partners health & future parenthood… when are you getting started? 😉
Nice one at getting a bike together. You going out today immediately after finishing it? A new bike deserves a proper ride, f the rain, trail centre nearby?
That’s exactly the pose one of the children did to me this morning in an intervention class ha.
Thanks everyone, I’ve tried to hide a lot over the year but just felt this needed saying.
Jekkyl I’ve got one more lesson/booster then home to build. Going to take Claire for a special day out tomorrow then hopefully a ride on Sunday. Always thought I’d be the strong one but for what Claire’s been through she’s blown me away.Posted 4 years ago
I sold the slants in preparation for what we thought was happening. With things looking up and jobs secured I put the cash to the pikes. The mrs out some money too as an engagement present.
The last couple of weeks have been so positive we thought we’d treat ourselves. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
