Jon – it clears my mind and helps me regain focus

My name is Jon, 44.

Basically is started mountain biking about 12 years ago as away of getting fit and losing weight but quickly stopped as it was taking up to much of my time. I started to run but after a number of years and a number of injuries I turned back to my bike. By this time I had a road bike that I used for cross training. That was about 4 1/2 years ago and I haven’t looked back.

After family my bike(s) mean the most to me even though I have been to some very dark places both physically and mentally on it. But the peace I find on it clears my mind and helps me regain focus when at times I have none.

I ride with a local club and love it but the times riding alone are sometimes the best.

So that’s it, that’s me.
