Who am I ?
I’m English : A normal bloke, nothing special, left school when I was 16, worked until I was about 25 then moved to France because of a girl
I’ve now been living in France now for over 35 years,
I get muddled talking or writing in English sometimes as I forget how to write or talk in my mother tongue.
I’ve always been active, mostly mountain biking, then added a normal road bike and after a singlespeed to my bike collection
2012 became my ‘Gym year’, taking time off biking and spending most days at the gym, keeping fit, losing weight and gaining lean muscle
2015 became my ‘Crossfit year’ this slowly taking over from the gym
2017 : I’m now at the 59 mark but still alive and kicking and to be honest pretty fit for my age, even if I say it myself,
2017_B : My company after 30 years running closed down in November as we couldn’t compete any longer, a difficult time, the only good news was I was able to to take my retirement at the beginning 2018 as I started work at 16 years old and so was allowed
2018 A bad year for me, broke my ankle late November 2017 while out running and three days later totally lost my hearing in my right ear (now have a Cochlear Implant) and lost all comprehension of spoken words in my left ear plus 60% hearing loss, so 2018 was a difficult year.
2019 in March I was kitted out with a Cochlear Implant so I can ‘hear’ again, this is far from perfect, but I can manage to understand people when they are up close and in a not to noisy environnement, my ankle is very slowly getting better, have started trail running again, but am going to stop as articulations keep telling me they don’t like running. I have bought a new style of bike. I am now riding Gravel bikes, as well as Mountain bikes and my Singlespeed
I’m back and won’t stop
