Riding2Recovery: a journey within a journey
@ I’m on two simultaneous journey’s. The first is through poor mental health, and the second involves a bicycle. Since adolescence, my life has been plagued with emotional distress. Six years ago I faced a major breakdown, the fourth, and by far the most intense to date.

I lost my career as a teacher, my home, and everything else as the storm ravaged my mind. After three family deaths, and four years, I took a holiday in Scotland where I met several cycle tourists. It reminded me of how much I used to enjoy cycling myself, some eighteen years previously.

On my return I bought a bicycle, the adventure began, and my recovery started. This is my story, from the darkest days of the breakdown, to the joy of completing a 4000 mile charity cycle ride around the coast of the UK. It’s an honest and open account of the long road to the start, as well as a detailed, and at times funny account,of the four months I spent on the road.

From the outset of preparation,
